James Gilchrist
Song Day 3

Saturday 17 February 2018 at 7.00PM
National Centre for Early Music

James Gilchrist tenor

Peter Seymour fortepiano

Schubert     Die schöne Müllerin

Our annual Song Day this year focusses on the great German Lieder repertoire.  The National Centre for Early Music is a perfect setting for song recitals and particularly those of intimate and expressive German Lieder which were written for, and originally performed in, private houses.  In these three recitals, the fortepiano offers an appropriately sensitive accompaniment and surtitle translations will give ready access to the human emotions of the texts.

James Gilchrist is aguably the outstanding interpreter of Die schöne Müllerin.  As well as a song recitalist, he is also a renowned Evangelist in the Bach Passions.  He has performed internationally on concert platforms and on the opera stage.  James returns to York on Wednesday 20 June when he is soloist in Britten's War Requiem with the University Choir and Symphony Orchestra.
