The concert is the culmination of David Webb’s personal ‘Winter Journey’, a 500-mile cycle ride over 12 days in the darkest month of the year to raise funds for mental health charities MIND and Music Minds Matter (Help Musicians UK). Beginning on ‘Blue Monday’ 18 January, the most depressing day of the year, Webb will depart and return to his home in South London everyday having undertaken a 50-mile ride in London.
Schubert’s song cycle Winterreise, written nearly 200 years ago in 1828, delves deep into humankind’s propensity to feel, our emotional turmoil, grief, loss, depression and suicide with some of the most hauntingly beautiful music written for piano and voice.
Franz Schubert (1797-1828)
