HANS ZENDER: Schubert's Winterreise
What do listeners to Hans Zender's composed inter-pretation of Franz Schubert's Winterreise actually listen to? Is it quite simply an interpretation, or an instrumentation, an acoustic illustration, a highly original approach, a remake, an adaptation or a new creation? None of these terms would be wrong, and yet none truly corresponds to the complexitiy of this work.
