Beethoven established the song cycle as a serious genre with the creation of An die ferne Geliebte in 1816.
Ian Bostridge and Lars Vogt present the work’s diverse reflections on love in company with the dramatic contrasts of Schubert’s settings of poems by Heine, Rellstab and Seidl, complete with the composer’s final song, written a month before his death in November 1828.
