David Greco & Erin Helyard – Schubert's Die schöne Müllerin

A fresh and vibrant take on Schubert.

Classical luminaries David Greco and Erin Helyard combine their considerable talents in this ARIA-nominated interpretation of Shubert’s Die schöne Müllerin (The Maid of the Mill).

Composed in 1823, this iconic work is one of the earliest extended song cycles and one of Schubert’s most important works. In Die schöne Müllerin, we meet a young man with thoughts of love. Just one glimpse of the miller’s daughter at the window and he’s smitten, but in vain, for she loves another. The song cycle is loved for its breathtaking complexity, intense originality and the rich melodies that carved Schubert’s reputation as a genius of the lieder genre. Greco and Helyard’s Müllerin brings fresh insight into Schubert’s masterpiece while retaining the beauty that has made it so revered.
