Michael Kelly to perform Die Schöne Müllerin with guitar

Baritone Michael Kelly
American barihunk Michael Kelly will perform Franz Schubert’s Die Schöne Müllerin in an arrangement for guitar and voice, arranged by his accompanist David Leisner. The piece was originally written for voice and piano. Schubert was a guitarist himself, and most likely used the guitar to compose many of his songs.

Franz Schubert’s Die Schöne Müllerin is a cycle of twenty songs set to poems by the German  poet Wilhelm Müller. It tells the tale of a young boy whose journeys bring him to take an  apprenticeship at a mill, where he falls instantly in love with the miller's daughter. His love, and advances are sadly unrequited, and when she turns her attention to a hunter he bemoans losing her. Left with only the brook that guided him along the way, he succumbs to a watery grave as the brook lulls him to his final  rest.  

You can hear Kelly and Leisner perform Der Müller und der Bach HERE.

Kelly will perform the Brahms Requiem with Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra on April 21 and 22 next year. He previously performed Mohammed Fairouz’s Zabur with the orchestra, joined by the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir.
