The title of this concert speaks for itself, because we travel to the emotional and lonely world of Franz Schubert and his Winterreise. Schubert said to a friend: “I will play you a cycle of terrifying songs; they touched me more than any other song ever has.

Continuing the tradition of the Schubertian Liedernkreis, Mahler created his own "Winterreise": inspired by a soprano Johanna Richter. Mahler wrote: "I have written a cycle of songs, six so far, all dedicated to her. She does not know them What can they tell her except what she knows?… She is all that is sweet in this world. I would shed every drop of my blood for her.”

Leoš Janáčeks On an Overgrown Path also takes us on an emotional journey. It refers to his Moravian hometown, as he “walks along an overgrown path of old memories.”
