Gramophone Magazine wrote last year of Robin Tritschler’s performance of Beethoven’s An die ferne Geliebte (‘To the distant beloved’) that ‘he combines something of Fritz Wunderlich’s warmth with Christian Gerhaher’s altogether darker introspection, and is beautifully alert to the cycle’s constant shifts of emotion and mood’. Today he is joined by Roger Vignoles, one of the world's foremost accompanists, for a performance of this great song cycle. Their recital also includes songs by Brahms and Schubert, both grouped around themes the composers were recurringly drawn to birdsong and water.

This event is a live and live-streamed event.

For live, in-person events, all our seating is unreserved. This means you are guaranteed a seat in your chosen area, but not a specific seat. In order to allow for social distancing, you will be seated as an individual or as a group, based on the number of tickets you booked for this concert. For groups of more than 10, please phone or email the box office to book your tickets.

Live-streamed performances will be available to watch live in our Digital Concert Hall at the advertised performance time and will be available to watch again and on demand until the end of November. A link to the livestream will be sent to the ticketholder via email in advance of the performance. ‘Hybrid’ tickets are also available, valid for both in person and for the Digital Concert Hall, at an additional £3 to the in-person price.
