Ian Bostridge - Gala Concert

As our Quincentenary year drew to a close, Honorary Fellow, Ian Bostridge, accompanied by increasingly well-known young pianist, Sebastian Wybrew performed Schubert's great masterpiece, Die Schöne Müllerin, at the Sheldonian Theatre, on Saturday 25 November.

Composed in 1823, the song cycle tells of an apprenticed miller, cheerfully setting out to seek employment but then being caught up in an obsessive and ultimately doomed love.

Internationally renowned tenor Ian Bostridge has recorded Die Schöne Müllerin twice, firstly with Graham Johnson and secondly with Mitsuko Ushida. Both recordings have been met with critical acclaim.
