Schubert’s songs belong to the stock of mankind’s highest achievements, potent examples of the best in human creation and a vast reserve of solace and joy for performers and listeners alike.

Over the following two seasons Wigmore Hall presents the chance to hear the complete songs of Schubert performed by truly outstanding artists. Every recital in the Hall’s series will unfold in chronological order, moving from little-known early pieces to sublime late masterworks and exploring their infinite universe of musical and poetic expression.

We are delighted to be working on this mammoth project with the Schubertiade Schwarzenberg and Hohenems, with singers and pianists chosen by John Gilhooly and programmes devised by him in close collaboration with Graham Johnson, rightly regarded as one of the world’s leading Schubertians.

This series continues in the 2016/17 Season.
