Baritone Christian Gerhaher and pianist Gerold Huber perform Schubert's Winterreise at the Wigmore Hall.
Following the great success of Die schöne Müllerin in 1824, Schubert set Wilhelm Müller's Winterreise to music of heartfelt pathos and passion. Even though countless composers have sought to emulate Schubert's example, they have found it hard to match the vision of this unique masterpiece.
