Summary:
Tenor Jonas Kaufmann and pianist Helmut Deutsch have made their first recording of Schubert's Winterreise, recorded in October 2013 in the August Everding Hall in Grünwald in Munich. For Jonas Kaufmann, interpreting the classical lieder repertory is "the haute école of singing," and Schubert's Winterreise is generally regarded as the pinnacle of lieder singing. The Winterreise song cycle (Winter Journey) is set to 24 poems by the poet Wilhelm Müller and was completed by Schubert a year before his death in 1827. After over 20 years of working together and countless performances of Winterreise, Jonas Kaufmann and his piano-partner Helmut Deutsch finally commit the Olympus of the Lied repertoire to disc. What started as a teacher-student relationship at the Münchner Hochschule für Musik und Theater has long since developed into a close professional partnership. Helmut Deutsch is recognised as one of the world's foremost Lieder pianists.
