Conor Biggs, bass Michel Stas, piano
Schubertreise - the performance of the complete Schubert songs by Conor Biggs (Gonzaga Class of 1978) and Michel Stas
For their final recital of 2019, Conor Biggs and Michel Stas continue their voyage through mostly uncharted Schubertian territory. More celtic mythology in the Ossian setting Shilric und Vinvela; German mythology in Hermann und Thusnelda; a festive drinking song, Skolie; the exquisite miniature Der Jüngling an der Quelle, a shaggy dog story in Das gestörte Glück, and Beethovenian splendour in Dem Unendlichen.
