Tenor Jonas Kaufmann and pianist Helmut Deutsch have made their first recording of Schubert’s Winterreise, recorded in October 2013 in the August Everding Hall in Grünwald in Munich.

For Jonas Kaufmann, interpreting the classical lieder repertory is “the haute école of singing,” and Schubert’s Winterreise is generally regarded as the pinnacle of lieder singing. Kaufmann describes his experience of the work, “Even as interpreters we always find ourselves sucked into the emotional undertow of these songs, although we know perfectly well what to expect. I think that Winterreise has the same sort of cathartic effect as a Greek drama: the emotional experience purges the soul. On me, the work has an almost meditative effect because Schubert expressed these emotional depths with clarity and simplicity that I ultimately find consoling and that allows me to regain my own inner balance.”
