Schubert Lieder: old meets new
The Erlkings in the MuTh

The Erlkönig and Heidenröslein are widely recognised as two of the finest examples of the Lieder form. This is skilfully restated in this concert by the multi-award winning baritone Johannes Held and pianist Daniel Beskow. That Schubert’s Lieder can still display their true magnificence when performed in the style of pops songs, in English, using a line-up of guitar, cello, tuba and drums, is demonstrated by The Erlkings. Now a word-for-word comparison can be enjoyed on the MuTh stage, as the originals are performed alongside the Erlkings’ inimitable versions.
