Trip'n'n Winter, A Fresh Look at Schubert's Winterreise
Tom Yang, with a performing career in dance, musical comedy, acting, choreography and directing, takes a new and fresh look at Franz Schubert's great song cycle "Winterreise". At times heart-rending, at times poignantly funny, always very human, this take on "A Winter's Voyage" is aptly titled "Trip'n'n Winter". Tom is joined by the renowned New York concert pianist, Terry Eder.

Finding Winterreise...
The songs of Franz Schubert I have known it seems forever. Perhaps my mother played them when I was a child. They were played in ballet class. They were chosen by choreographers. Erlkönig entranced my early attempts at singing. Then some years ago, dancing less, singing more, I happened upon Der Leiermann. "I will learn it," said I to myself. Hook. Line. And sinker. Tom Yang
