Watch Gerald Finley and pianist Simon Lepper performance Schubert’s Schwanengesang, recorded on 22 May at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama / Coleg Brenhinol Cerdd a Drama Cymru. The stream premieres on 29 May and is available through 12 June.

RWCMD writes:

“‘The clouds drift by, the stars have vanished…winds blow coldly over the hills’. Schubert never lived to finish his song-cycle Schwanengesang, and there’s no more poignant tale of love and loss. Who better to retell that story tonight than regular collaborators Simon Lepper and Gerald Finley – the superb Canadian baritone, treasured by critics and audiences alike for his ‘refined, heartfelt, supremely moving’ performances of Romantic song.”
