Pianist John Wustman will join University of Portland faculty member Nicole Leupp Hanig in performing Franz Schubert’s masterwork song cycle, “Winterreise.” The concert is set for 3 p.m. Sunday, April 7 in Buckley Center Auditorium on campus.
First published in 1828, the set of 24 songs have text by German Romantic poet Wilhelm Müller.
Wustman's career highlights include a series of televised recitals with Pavarotti. Hanig has appeared as a soloist with the Jussi Björling Festival in Sweden, the Maggio Musicale Festival in Italy and the Pacific Music Festival in Japan.
