Mentor in Torment: Schubert and Mayrhofer at Bennett Gordon Hall

Graham Johnson illuminates the complicated friendship of Franz Schubert and Johann Mayrhofer with RSMI Singers.

“Mentor In Torment” traces the story of the complicated friendship between Franz Schubert (1797–1828) and the poet Johann Mayrhofer (1787–1836). Graham Johnson describes the fruitful influence that Mayrhofer’s knowledge and guidance had on Schubert’s development, and presents a selection of the great songs that were composed as a result of their collaboration.
