Winterreise is BBC Music Magazine's Choral & Song Choice of November!
"Exquisite beauty on this oft-travelled wintry path."
"In this devastating, brilliant interpretation, Bostridge's tone is dark, expressive and fluid; from his crow-croaked 'Krahe' as the ominous bird follows him in the eponymous song, to his growling rolled rs of 'Knurren' in 'Der Leirmann'. With Adès, he moves from the exquisite beauty of 'Das Wirtshaus' to the final thin, cruel breeze across the ice as the hurdy-gurdy man drones indifferently on."
