Ian Bostridge Book of the Week abridgement

Winter JourneyVery excited to have been asked to abridge Ian Bostridge’s forthcoming book, Schubert’s Winter Journey, for Radio 4’s Book of the Week slot.

Subtitled “Anatomy of an Obsession”, this is an exploration of Schubert’s song-cycle Winterreise by one of it’s finest interpreters. I imagine there’ll be a lot of interest in it when it is published at the turn of the year.

Provisionally, this Book of the Week will go out on Radio 4 in the week beginning 22 December.
