Ian Bostridge Gala Concert


Ian Bostridge performing Schubert’s Die Schöne Müllerin, accompanied by Sebastian Wybrew

Ian Bostridge, internationally acclaimed tenor and Honorary Fellow of Corpus and rising star accompanist, Sebastian Wybrew will be performing Schubert’s masterpiece, Die Schöne Müllerin. This moving and luminous work was composed in 1823 and was the first time a series of songs had been written for voice and piano with a continuous first- person narrative. It’s tale of a young apprentice, setting out to seek employment but finding instead an obsessive and ultimately doomed love is set against the rushing accompaniment of the millstream.

Ian Bostridge’s international recital career takes him to the foremost concert halls of Europe, Japan and North America, with regular appearances at the Salzburg, Edinburgh, Munich, Vienna, Schwarzenberg and Aldeburgh festivals. He has had residencies at the Wiener Konzerthaus, Carnegie Hall New York, Het Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Philharmonie Luxembourg, London’s Barbican Centre and Wigmore Hall. Highlights of the 2017/18 season include Berlioz Les Nuits d’Eté with the Seattle Symphony and Ludovic Morlot, recital tours to both the East and West coasts of America, the title role in Handel’s Jeptha at the Opéra National de Paris, a residency with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra and Britten’s War Requiem with the Staatskapelle Berlin and Antonio Pappano.

His many recordings have won all the major international record prizes and been nominated for fifteen Grammys. He was awarded a CBE in the 2004 New Year’s Honours.  In 2016 he was awarded the The Pol Roger Duff Cooper Prize for non-fiction writing for his latest book, Schubert’s Winter Journey: Anatomy of an Obsession.
