Nathan Berg has selected a programme covering more than a century of Romantic, German lieder, including some of the best-loved songs of the genre: Der Tod und das Mädchen (Death and the Maiden), Erlkönig, and Meine Rose. His long recital partnership with Julius Drake started when Berg was a student in London in the early 90s, and the two continue to perform together frequently.
