Mark Padmore - Tenor, Maggie Cole - Fortepiano
ëDoes she love me? The flowers and stars cannot tell me....í
Two highly acclaimed musicians perform Schubertís great song cycle, an exquisite story of spring and summer, of a shy young millerís love, of the fickleness of the ëfair maid of the millí, of a journey from joy through anger and jealousy to numb despair. And running through all twenty songs are the ever-present sounds of the stream - singing and silvery, tossing and turbulent - and the mill with its turning wheel, its grinding stones.
