Florian Boesch & Malcolm Martineau
  • Edinburgh International Festival

Join baritone Florian Boesch and pianist Malcolm Martineau for a performance of Schubert's song cycle Winterreise, charged with forceful intensity and subtle theatricality.

Austrian baritone Florian Boesch is one of the worlds most respected Lieder singers, acclaimed on concert stages across the world for his disarming mix of psychological perceptiveness and captivating lyricism, and for the glowing golden timbre of his agile voice. He delivers performances that lodge long in the memory, highlighting new perspectives on even the most familiar of songs.

He is joined by his regular musical collaborator, Edinburgh-born pianist Malcolm Martineau, for one of the monuments of the song repertoire. Boesch and Martineaus 2012 recording of Schuberts Winterreise was immediately hailed as one of the most powerful Lieder discs of recent decades, capturing the song cycles themes of the joys of young love, the pain of rejection, and an unflinching confrontation with death in a performance of forceful intensity and subtle theatricality.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
