Die Schone Mullerin and other songs of 1823 -6 Britten and Pears were internationally renowned for their insightful duo performances of Schubert Lieder, many of which were given here at the Aldeburgh Festival. Inheriting that mantle, Christoph Pregardien and Malcolm Martineau bring unrivalled depth of experience to this repertoire. In this intensive class we explore the extraordinary period between 1823-6 which included the first of Schubert’s great song cycles, Die Schone Mullerin and songs like Die Yunge Nonne. Established Lieder duos in all voices should apply – we may also be able to accept applications from individual singers and pianists.
