Notes and Editorial Reviews

David Alden's stunning film version of Schubert's Winterreise plus a fifty minute documentary entitled 'Over The Top With Franz' which describes the difficulties in bringing this work to the screen. Focusing on the developing relationships between the artists, from the first rehearsal to the final day of filming, this is a rare and humorous insight into the collaborative process.

 A Video by the Greatest Living Lieder Singer July 15, 2015 By Donald Mintz (Trumansburg, NY) See All My Reviews "The idea of making some kind of dramatic video out of a Bostridge/Drake performance of Schubert's Winterreise cycle—about which, by the way Bestride has written the best book about music I have read in many decades—is slightly wacky on its face. In fact however, David Alden has contrived a brilliant elucidation of the music; the effect of the performance—somewhat over the top even by Bostridge/Drake standards—is greatly enhanced. By the way, Drake, a true artistic descendent of Gerald Moore, is here as always not an accompanist but a collaborator in a chamber music performance. I doubt that you will ever find a better performance of this music, the splendid visual aspects of the video aside. Donald Mintz Prof emeritus, music history Montclair State University" Report Abuse
