Martijn Cornet and the Ragazze Quartet bring a probing version of Schubert’s Winterreise, in an arrangement for baritone and string quartet.
Winterreise takes up a central place in Schubert’s song repertoire and in the hearts of the lovers of his music. Hundreds of CD recordings were made of the work up until now. The yearning for the unknown and the unworldly speaks from the text of each song of Winterreise. This voyage isn’t just any voyage; it is a voyage towards the undefined.
Baritone Martijn Cornet studied at the Conservatoire of Amsterdam under the care of famous pedagogue Margreet Honig. In the mean time he has built a glorious career. He sang in various opera companies such as the Early Company in London and the Opéra National de Lorraine. Several times did he perform at Dutch National Opera in Amsterdam, in classical operas but also in world premieres of Peter-Jan Wagemans and Louis Andriessen. For the past few years, Cornet has been an ensemble member at the Aalto Theater in Essen.
Winterreise will be arranged for baritone and string quartet especially by Wim ten Have.
