Spinning with Schubert

Audio will be available later today.

Mezzo-soprano Janet Baker sings a Schubert classic, called "Gretchen at the Spinning Wheel." It tells the tale of a woman distraught over the loss of her lover, as she spins her wool at the revolving wheel. Geoffrey Parsons is the pianist.
