Before the songwriters of the 20th century, Schubert was the master of love songs, and for many, he still is. For fifteen-time GRAMMY-nominated singer Ian Bostridge, that is certainly the case. “Schubert song changed my life,” says the acclaimed tenor, whose life with the composer has spanned several decades. In the intimate setting of Mandel Hall, Bostridge—who comes to the University of Chicago to deliver the 2021 Berlin Family lectures—presents Schubert’s remarkable Lieder, from early songs like “Der Jüngling an der Quelle” to later ones such as “Das Lied im Grünen” and “Im Abendrot.”
