Description


Die schöne Müllerin
is a cycle of 20 songs by popular composer Franz Schubert using poetry by German-Romantic writer Wilhelm Müller. It is considered one of the composer's most important works and remains a staple of the art song repertory. The cycle follows a narrative concerning a young, care-free journeyman who is enthralled by the beautiful daughter of a mill's owner. Lamont and Knopp's interpretation attempts to tackle important modern social issues and to bring Schubert's music to life in a fresh, vibrant way. Die schöne Müllerin will be sung in original German with overhead translations of the poems in English.

Thomas Lamont is a tenor from New Westminster and Christopher Knopp is a pianist from Surrey. The two met while studying together at Kwantlen Polytechnic University and began a partnership as collaborators. Naturally in sync, dedicated students of the art song repertory, and both virtuosos in their own right the partnership of Knopp and Lamont makes easy work of some of the most demanding music for voice and piano. Together they have performed Schubert's Winterreise and Liszt's fiendishly challenging cycle, Tre sonetti di Petrarca to name a few. Thomas is a multidisciplinary singer based in Vancouver and has sung professionally in opera, musical theatre, and oratorio. He is known for his clear, full tone and effortless execution of florid passages. Christopher is a pianist based in Montreal who works both as a collaborator and a soloist and has been praised for his sincere approach to interpretation and subtle use of pianistic colours.
