The 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 an knack of creating catchy tunes (as in the ones used in the McDull movies) but his genius was in providing those catchy tunes with equally seducing company, or rather, accompaniment. This concert will explore how Schubert always finds the perfect accompaniment to give the melody a complementing atmosphere and aura, charming audiences past and present.
