Song cycle: Schubert’s Die schöne Müllerin

Wednesday 13 June 2018, 7.30pm in the Old Chapel



William Balkwill and Matthew Jorysz give a recital of Schubert’s beloved song recital, the earliest extended cycle of its kind to be widely performed. The songs tell of an apprenticed miller, setting out to seek employment but discovering a joyous, obsessive and ultimately destructive love for the ‘fair maid of the mill’ he soon meets.

William Balkwill is a lay vicar in the choir of Westminster Abbey. In addition to his work at the Abbey, he is also a consort and solo singer. He sings regularly with The Tallis Scholars and The Cardinall’s Musick and has also participated in projects with The Gabrielli Consort, The Sixteen and Tenebrae. He is in wide demand as a soloist. Matthew Jorysz is Assistant Organist of Westminster Abbey. Before this he held the Abbey’s Organ Scholarship for a term, and the Organ Scholarship at Clare College, Cambridge, whilst studying for a degree in music.
