Franz Schubert: Die schöne Müllerin (Prégardien)
Christoph Prégardien and Michael Gees are, beyond the shadow of a doubt, among the greatest interpreters of Schubert’s song cycle “Die schöne Müllerin”. The cycle deals with a period in the life of a young miller lad as he wanders along a stream in search of work; he meets a mill-girl and falls in love with her; then loses her to another man and, in deep despair, drowns himself in the millstream. “Die schöne Müllerin” - consisting of twenty songs - is an amazing compendium of the human psych which deals with the miller’s emotions as he finds, and then loses, his love.
