Ian Bostridge sings songs by Schubert and Wolf

London tenor Ian Bostridge studied History and Philosophy at Cambridge. Concurrently he pursued his music career, singing German and English songs, performing recitals and taking part in singing contests. In 1991 he won the National Federation of Music Societies / Esso Award. Two years later he made his debut at Wigmore Hall in London and sang Schubert's Winterreise at the Aldeburgh Festival in 1994. Because of his studies in Philosophy, the history of thinking and the change in the scientific way of viewing the world have always been of particular interest to Ian Bostridge. His love for songs and science are the key to His singing skills. This is underpinned by his joy in working with lyrics, his enthusiasm for speech-like arrangements of moods or dramatic situations and the necessity of becoming one with the music and content of the arrangements within their context and conveying this to the audience. As a historian, he does this by seeking out or creating connections. This programme, recorded at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris in February 2000, consists of two halves: the first part is dedicated to Franz Schubert, whose songs Ian Bostridge has been familiar with for one and a half decades, whereas part two is dedicated to Hugo Wolf. With Schubert came a new direction in the evolution of German songs, with Hugo Wolf it ended. Both halves follow their own dramaturgy, and Ian .Bostridge does justice to both.
