Franz Schubert: "Die schöne Müllerin"

Ilker Arcayürek & James Baillieu
{{ message.content }}

The Lied Festival Victoria de los Ángeles 2021 has an overarching theme: "Journeys of the Soul". This could hardly be a better fit for Schubert's lieder cycle Die schöne Müllerin, sung by the young tenor Ilker Arcayürek, accompanied by James Baillieu. All three major Schubert cycles will be performed at this year's festival. Portraits of the cycle, the wanderings of a despairing narrator, a figure into which Schubert poured a great deal of himself: A young wandering apprentice miller sets out on a journey following a stream, meets the daughter of his new master, and falls in love. He experiences devastating rejection. It ends with a lullaby at the stream where the apprentice has drowned himself. Wonderfully set to music, the love of life gives way to despair and longing for death: A very romantic work.
