As he has chronicled in his insightful Schubert's Winter Journey—Anatomy of an Obsession, tenor Ian Bostridge has had a profound relationship with the most famous of song cycles throughout his entire career. Bostridge's special affinity for Winterreise has grown through more than 100 performances over three decades and in many different contexts, and Schubert's haunting, layered musical allegory continues to captivate him. "It is as if Schubert somehow looked into the future, heard Bostridge sing and wrote Winterreise specifically for him" (Exeunt Magazine).
