“I cordially and especially invite you to this recital, because it has been my dream for more than 10 years that Ian Bostridge comes to Bonn with his life’s work – Schubert’s “Winterreise”. I think this is one of the best, if not the best interpretation of Schubert from my personal opinion and I am happy to bring him to Bonn for the first time” – Rostislav Krimer.
