Music of Franz Schubert (1797-1828)
Conducted by Bernhard Gueller
Featuring Andrea Ludwig, mezzo-soprano
Released 2017 on Symphony Nova Scotia Media
“On this recording, we combined Schubert’s Symphony no. 3 and orchestrated songs to show the development and progress Schubert made within 13 years. He wrote the Symphony no. 3 at age 18, and the songs from the Winterreise cycle are from the last year before his death. And the difference between them is astonishing.” – Bernhard Gueller
Thank you to NAXOS and the Tintner Foundation for making this recording possible
