Die Winterreise – Franz Schubert
Magnus Walker (tenor) and his accompanist, Alexandra Standing, will be performing Schubert’s song-cycle “Die Winterreise”, in St Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow at 6.00pm on Saturday 14th December. The concert will last a little over an hour, and refreshments will be served after the performance. Magnus was a member of St Mary’s Cathedral Choir and the RSNO Junior Chorus for many years before accepting a scholarship to study singing at the Royal Academy of Music in London with Richard Berkely-Steele, and is already gaining a reputation as one of the most promising tenors of his generation. He recently won the First Prize in the prestigious Joan Chisell/Rex Stephens award for Schumann Lieder at the RAM.
Alex also studies at the RAM on the post-graduate accompanists course, having first studied here in Glasgow at the RCS, and has won various accompanying awards including First Prize in the Marjorie Thomas Art of Song award, and Highly Commended in the Elena Gerhardt Lieder prize.
