Acclaimed Irish baritone Owen Gilhooly-Miles and pianist Niall Kinsella collaborate to perform Schubert’s iconic final song-cycle, Schwanengesang (Swan-Song). Composed in the final months of his life and published as a cycle after his death, Schwanengesang is often seen as Schubert’s final testament to life. Comprising of two groups of songs to poems by Heinrich Heine and Ludwig Rellstab, plus his final song, the poignant ‘Die Taubenpost’, Schwanengesang’s experimental and sometimes avant-garde nature shows us the promise of a hugely-talented composer taken in his prime. Irish Songmakers is delighted to present this performance of Schubert’s Schwanengesang, having presented performances of the composer’s other two cycles in recent years: Die schöne Müllerin in 2020, and Winterreise in 2022.
