Even a songwriter as original as Schubert had his influences: ‘Immortal Mozart’, he confessed to his diary, ‘How many intimations of a better life have you left in our souls!’ Together, Anne Sofie von Otter and Kristian Bezuidenhout have devised a Schubertiade with a distinctive accent; one that finds space for Mozart’s own exquisitely-wrought songs as well as the solo piano pieces in which Schubert expanded his vision, and places them alongside the neglected romantic lieder of the ‘Swedish Schubert’ Adolf Lindblad.
