Crescent Chamber Artists says
A unique double artist perspective on Franz Schubert's Winterriese offered in performance to the public in an Intimate performance space, as it would have been done in the place of its origin and time of its completion in 1828.
Join tenors Dana Wilson and Jonanthan Yarrington as they collaborate with pianist/accompanist Steven Edwards to present this timeless work of art.

Winterreise (Winter Journey) is a song cycle for voice and piano by Franz Schubert (D. 911, published as Op. 89 in 1828), a setting of 24 poems by Wilhelm Müller. It is the second of Schubert's two great song cycles on Müller's poems, the earlier being Die schöne Müllerin (D. 795, Op. 25, 1823). Both were originally written for tenor voice but are frequently transposed to suit other vocal ranges – the precedent being established by Schubert himself. These two works have posed interpretative demands on listeners and performers due to their scale and structural coherence.

The composition was originally composed in two parts, each containing twelve songs, the first part in February 1827 and the second in October 1827. The two parts were also published separately, by Tobias Haslinger, the first on 14 January 1828, and the second (the proofs of which Schubert was still correcting days before his death on 19 November) on 30 December 1828.
