Robert Brandt to perform Schubert's "Winterreise" at BYU Jan. 24

Guest artist Robert Brandt will give a vocal recital at Brigham Young University Tuesday, Jan. 24, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall, Harris Fine Arts Center. Admission is free.

He will be performing “Winterreise” by Franz Schubert. The 24 songs of this cycle are settings of the evocative poetry by Schubert’s contemporary Wilhelm Müller. The cycle is a heartrending portrayal of suffering and loss. It traces the poet's journey as he walks through a winter landscape reflecting not only on his lost love, but also on larger questions of life and meaning.

Brandtis an assistant professor of voice at the University of Delaware. He earned bachelor of music and master of music vocal performance degrees from BYU studying with J. Arden Hopkin and Clayne Robison. He went on to receive a doctor of music in vocal performance and literature from Indiana University where he studied with Costanza Cuccaro.
