Roderick Williams & Iain Burnside: Exploring Schubert’s Song Cycles

Challenged by John Gilhooly, Director of Wigmore Hall to perform Schubert’s three great song cycles for the first time in his career, Roderick Williams embarks on a journey through vast emotional landscapes and diverse spiritual states together with his long-standing duo partner, Iain Burnside.

But what challenges do they face? How can they escape the ghosts of the past?

Ahead of their performance of Die schöne Müllerin, Roderick Williams and Iain Burnside discuss their journey so far.
