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

Christoph Prégardien, tenor
Roger Vignoles, piano

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.
