"You have never seen me sad; let it not happen now, on parting…” Schubert’s Schwanengesang collects the last thoughts of one of music’s noblest spirits. Tender, heartfelt and profound, it’s a whole music-drama in miniature. And you’ll never hear it sung with more understanding or love than by two of the world’s greatest living interpreters of lieder: Roderick Williams and the incomparable Iain Burnside. The evening opens with songs by Vaughan Williams and Fauré, both late works by these composers.

Williams perfectly captured the balance between anger and irony, bittersweet recollection and despair, and made every word, every syllable, matter.
