Event description

Description

Spend your Sunday afternoon with a glass of bubbly and the Jónsson-Kim duo as they present Schubert's Winterreise (Winter Journey) in the magical and intimate setting of the Shoreditch Treehouse, where you can enjoy classical music in a non-formal environment.

----

Winterreise - Winter Journey, was written a year before the end of Schubert's short life. Based on poems by Wilhelm Müller, Winterreise is a cycle of 24 songs for voice and piano.

The wanderer's winter journey begins as he leaves the house of his beloved and travels through a winter landscape that leads him to question his identity, the conditions of his existence and the meaning of life. The second half is filled with hope and despair, ending with him sharing his misery with a beggar street musician - the hurdy gurdy man.

They are Britten-Pears Young Artists, and are alumni of the Oxford Lieder Festival, International Vocal Competition s'-Hertogenbosch and the International Lied Festival in Zeist.

About Shoreditch Treehouse

Shoreditch Treehouse is a magical loft space in the heart of Shoreditch which has been home to acoustic gigs by Sofar Sounds, Debut Opera and Emeli Sandé. Huge vaulted wooden ceilings, twinkling lights, a 9 foot concert grand Steinway piano and a capacity of just 100 make this venue the perfect intimate setting for a Sunday afternoon of one of Schubert's greatest gems.

www.shoreditchtreehouse.co.uk

Notes on the venue: The venue has a relaxed dress policy. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate stilettos as they tend to indent the old wooden floors. We are located on a 3rd floor with no lift so guests must be able to walk/run/hop up three flights of stairs. Seating options include sofas, stools, chairs, swings, hammocks and floor cushions - arrive early to get the pick of the options. There will be a cash bar selling prosecco and craft beer, as well as a water station with ice and cups provided.
