Jonathan Lasch and Rob Conway

Performing Franz Schubert's Schwanengesang in it's entirety, with a brief intermission.

Schwanengesang, or Swan Song, was published in 1829 just a few month’s after Schubert’s death, and was advertised as the composer’s third major song cycle by the publisher. However, this collection of songs was not a true cycle, as the poems came from three different poets; Ludwig Rellstab, Heinrich Heine, and Johann Seidl and the texts do not tell a continuous story. Schubert composed the first 13, of 14 songs in a single sitting on consecutive manuscript pages..
