Austrian composer Franz Schubert often enjoyed the delightful company of his friends. They would meet regularly in the “Schubertiade”, reciting poems and singing Schubert’s songs for each other. In a sense, this lifestyle is the perfect reflection of Schubert’s musical style. He had a knack for creating catchy tunes (for example, the ones used in the McDull movies), but his genius was in providing those tunes with an equally seductive accompaniment. This concert will explore how Schubert always managed to find the perfect accompaniment to give the melody a complementary atmosphere and aura, charming audiences past and present.
