Tower  Seminar series – Die Winterreise

November 7, 2018 at 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Die Winterreise
Presenters: Pauline Graham, Yonit Kosovske, Marieke Krajenbrink
Chair: Dr Yonit Kosovske
The Tower Theatre (Theatre 2)
Soprano Pauline Graham and pianist Yonit Kosovske will perform Franz Schubert’s exquisite song cycle Die Winterreise, A Winter Journey. In this performance, the musicians will depart from the traditional stage set-up as the vocalist journeys throughout the audience members who will be situated freely throughout the room in chairs and on yoga mats. Yonit’s photography slideshow will accompany the music—each image an interpretation of Wilhelm Müller’s poetry that Schubert so artfully set to music. Collaborating on this project is Dr Marieke Krajenbrink, who will present a pre-concert lecture about Müller’s poems in the context of German Romanticism and Lieder.
Scottish soprano Pauline Graham enjoys performing song recitals and early repertoire, with appearances at early music festivals in Sligo, Galway, Utrecht and Cremona. She has been featured as a soloist at the National Concert Hall, Dublin, and been broadcast on RTÉ television and radio. A graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Pauline continued her vocal studies at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, and developed her Lieder interpretation through classes with Elly Ameling and the late Elisabeth Schwarzkopf.
Yonit Kosovske performs internationally as a soloist and chamber artist on harpsichord, modern piano, fortepiano, and chamber organ on repertoire spanning the Renaissance through Contemporary. Yonit is a Lecturer of Music at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, University of Limerick. She is also a writer, photographer, and artistic director of diverse research and performance projects bringing together music and visual arts.
Admission is free and all are welcome.
