Schubert’s Winterreise, completed in 1872, is a set of 24 songs for voice and piano composed almost entirely using minor keys, which unlike the warm sounds of major keys often sound sad to our ears. The lyrics are poems by Wilhelm Müller and tell the story of a lonely traveler who ventures out into the snow on a journey to rid himself of his lost love. Along the way, he experiences a turmoil of different emotions. Winterreise requires the performers to immerse themselves totally in the atmosphere of cold, dark, forlorn despair. They need to create that atmosphere by the tonal color of the voice and of the possibilities of the instrument.
