“On this recording, we open up the complete original music set for the voice in Franz
Schubert’s “Winter Journey” to the two wind instruments oboe and bassoon.
We play Winterreise from an inner conviction – it draws us in and will not let us go. After we
had played some of these Lieder at home for the first time, we could not resist them. We
were seized by the ambition to arrange this setting with oboe, bassoon and piano, and make
it as intensive and expressive a version of Winterreise as we could.
We set out to show that the two instruments breathe, even sing, just as naturally as the
human voice. The poetry of Wilhelm Müller should on no account be dismissed or disregarded
for that reason. On the contrary, we rely on the subconscious recall of the sung words – by
us and by our listeners – in order to bring out convincingly in instrumental sound the ideas
inseparably associated by Franz Schubert with Wilhelm Müller’s poetic narrative.
We were carried away by the euphoria of making this music, by the gloomy, despairing mood
full of yearning and desire. Where such an emotional journey can lead is evident only when
one has lived it every step of the way.
