“Against this stark background, Bostridge and Drake carefully ratchet up the cycle’s intrinsic drama, unconstrained by the parameters of a recital realising a far wider range of dynamics and instrumental colour than usual. The piano felt like a whole orchestra, descriptive and evocative; Drake’s magisterial command of tonal inflections allowing him to invest Schubert’s transitions from minor to major mode and major to minor with acute emotional point, with Bostridge bringing to the illusory, dreamlike, incursions into the major an almost ecstatic air of delusion.”
