Schubert: Die schöne Müllerin

Peter Pears and Benjamin Britten

HTGCD234 – 5013993893592

Britten and Pears were formidable in their interpretations of a variety of repertoire but their recordings of Schubert were particularly insightful. The 1960 recording of Die schöne Müllerin is captured here accompanied by three lieder which were released a year later.

73 minutes

‘Britten who is, as we know, a wonderful accompanist, excels himself in this cycle and his artistic partnership with Pears gives us a most imaginative and moving interpretation of the wonderful work.’
