Acclaimed pianist Jeremy Denk interviews British tenor Ian Bostridge, whose performances of Winterreise “haunt the imagination long after the notes have died away” (New York Magazine) and whose new book, Schubert’s Winterreise: Anatomy of an Obsession, offers a personal examination of the song cycle’s literary, historical and psychological themes. “He is not only a lyric tenor of uncanny focus and intensity but also an accredited scholar and deft commentator on musical matters,” wrote Alex Ross.
