Ian Bostridge and Brad Mehldau

When Ian Bostridge performed Schumann’s Dichterliebe song cycle at Carnegie Hall in 2011, The New York Times wrote that he “had a compelling idea about the words and music of every phrase.” Bostridge returns with new insights to this touchstone of the repertoire, which reflects the anguish of Schumann’s separation from his beloved Clara. He is joined by award-winning composer-pianist Brad Mehldau, a chameleonic figure whose spellbinding performances range from jazz to classical and beyond. Together, they premiere a new song cycle co-commissioned for the occasion by Carnegie Hall.
