Schubert’s creative quest drew energy and inspiration from poetry’s potential to unlock fresh ways of being.

Ian Bostridge and Graham Johnson begin by exploring the diverse styles present in the young composer’s songs of 1815–16 before fathoming his striking experiments with the spiritual poetry of Novalis’s Hymnen and closing with five sublime masterworks from the early 1820s.
