Lunchtime Recitals at Square Chapel

Schubert’s Winterreise: Bridget Budge and Daniel Bath

Tue 13 Mar, 12:30pm at Copper Auditorium

Tickets: £6 (£4 concessions)

The greatest of all song cycles, Schubert’s heart-rendingly beautiful Winterreise (Winter Journey) gives voice to the world-weary soul of all who have loved, lost and wandered through the winter night.  Schubert pours his most exquisite vocal melodies and ingenious piano writing into these dark vignettes from idyllic past visions of young love dappled beneath the linden tree to the lone vagrant playing his worn-out barrel organ barefoot in the ice.

Critically acclaimed as a champion of the contralto voice, Bridget Budge has delighted audiences at home and abroad with her performances in oratorio, opera and song as well as founding and conducting the Halifax-based Orion Chamber Choir.  Daniel is also a familiar figure on the local music scene, as a performer of classical and jazz piano, as a composer and as a conductor of Square Chapel’s very own Young Philharmonia.   Bridget and Daniel are very excited to share one of their favourite works in this very special recital.
