Widely regarded as one of today’s finest interpreters of Schubert, Ian Bostridge is joined once again by Julius Drake in a partnership that brings eloquence, intensity and maturity to a carefully selected programme.

From the dramatic ‘Auf der Brücke’ to the charming favourite ‘Die Forelle’, the musicians delve deep into the music and poetry of each and every song, as they unveil touching personal reflections through their performance. This release, the second volume of Bostridge’s Wigmore Hall Live series, captures the enchanting recital in the clarity and warmth of the Hall’s acoustic.

BBC Music Magazine

October 2015


“Drake is a calm and authoritative presence, seeking out and highlighting niceties of Schubert's piano writing. Ian Bostridge, meanwhile, shows a careful attention to the text, though sometimes vocal limitations prevent him from entirely realising his artistic intentions...The best things here, however...repay repeated listening.”

CD Review

23rd May 2015

“as you’d expect from a singer with such well-developed literary instincts, this is a superbly planned and executed Schubert recital.”

Gramophone Magazine

September 2015

“performances have the right nexus of intelligence, deep study and ion-performance inspiration...[Bostridge] supplies textual articulation and emotional heat but leaves more specific characterisation up to Drake at the piano.”

Irish Times

14th October 2015

“Bostridge’s highly personal style is both intimate and intense, the feelings sometimes bursting out as if they were impossible to contain … Julius Drake at the piano is a full partner, imbued in and developing the moods of the voice.”

The Scotsman

19th June 2015

“Apart from the instantly distinguishing feature of Ian Bostridge’s crystal clear tenor voice, his signature is ever present in this second volume of Schubert songs, recorded live at the Wigmore Hall, through the sheer intelligence of the programme and the vivid sense of storytelling that brings each song alive.”
