Schubert Symphony No.4 ‘Tragic’

Franz Schubert was one of the greatest songwriters of all time, so for a conductor like Laurence Equilbey – who never conducts a predictable concert – a programme that begins with Schubert’s delightful Rosamunde overture and ends with the high symphonic drama of his ‘Tragic’ symphony has simply got to find room for his songs. So meet Ilker Arcayürek , described by Opera Now as ‘a golden and natural lyric tenor’. He captivated audiences at the 2015 Cardiff Singer of the World, and he’ll bring all his theatrical flair to this selection of Schubert songs, each one a music-drama in miniature.
