With the dust not yet settled on my last solo disc ‘Matthew Gee’s Amazing Sliding Circus’, it is with fresh trepidation that I jump headfirst into another project: Schubert’s Winterreise. This has been bubbling away for a couple of years now, and with Naxos on board to deliver the disc, it is finally time to put things in motion.
Given the huge amount of work the project requires, a friend suggested that I blog about the process and give an insight into all the musical and extra-musical decisions I make along the way. Yet more work I thought, but perhaps it may be therapeutic to reflect on each weeks work, and it just might focus the mind.
