Elysium – A Schubert Recital

The latest recital album from Carolyn Sampson and Joseph Middleton exploring the mythical idea of a blessed and happy eternal future through Schubert Lieder.

Carolyn Sampson and Joseph Middleton’s latest recital album is themed around Elysium, the mythical idea of a blessed and happy eternal future. They explore this theme through Schubert’s music set to texts exploring different states of the afterlife by authors such as Goethe and Rückert.

Soprano Carolyn Sampson is widely celebrated for her recital and opera work, with particular recognition for her early music. Her long-standing musical partnership with pianist Joseph Middleton continues here. Middleton is establishing himself as one of the leading song accompanists today, regularly working with internationally renowned singers.
