Of Love And Beloved: Christoph Prégardien & Roger Vignoles

Of Love and Beloved: Christoph Prégardien & Roger Vignoles

Christoph Prégardien & Roger Vignoles


BEETHOVEN An die ferne Geliebte
SCHUBERT Rellstab-Lieder from Schwanengesang
SCHUMANN Dichterliebe

“consummately sung and played… [Prégardien’s] intelligence as an interpreter is as sharply focused as ever, with the ability to make his audience hang on every word, totally immersed in the worlds he evokes.” —The Guardian


Requited love, or the absence of it, remains a dominant muse for composers. Come and hear a performance by celebrated tenor Christoph Prégardien, accompanied by Roger Vignoles, of three song cycles of love, loss, and yearning. Beethoven expresses regret and acceptance in his song cycle An die ferne Geliebte. Schubert laments rejected love in the yearning melodies of his Rellstab-Lieder from Schwanengesang. And in Dichterliebe, Schumann depicts a story of love and betrayal set to Heinrich Heine’s poems.
