Ian Bostridge continues his exploration of Schubert song cycles on PENTATONE with a recording of Die schone Mullerin, together with pianist Saskia Giorgini. Die schone Mullerin (1823) was Schubert's first song cycle, and simultaneously Bostridge's first extended introduction to the Lied and all its wonders. Schubert initially conceived the cycle together with poet Wilhelm Muller as a party game among friends, but gradually got captivated by the profundity of this apparently naive love story. Bostridge is equally fascinated by the way in which this playful, folksy piece gradually transforms into a cosmic lullaby in the final lines of the last song 'des Baches Wiegenlied'. For pianist Giorgini, the key to - but also the greatest challenge of - interpreting Schubert's music, and particularly Die schone Mullerin, lies in the oceanic experience and hypnotic power of repetition. Ian Bostridge is one of the most celebrated tenors and lied interpreters of his generation. His PENTATONE recording of Schubert's Winterreise (2019) was crowned with the ICMA Vocal Music Award 2020. Saskia Giorgini makes her PENTATONE debut.
