Franz Schubert, a name familiar to most people.
Music, beautiful touching music in so many ways. Schubert without Vienna – a no go. Definitely.
Playing his music at the piano throughout my entire life and teaching Schubert songs at the University for so many years were some of the best experiences in my life ever. And yet, after all these years the mystery of his music is as untouchable as ever.
Yehudi Menuhin, the wonderful violinist, once said, “Music lifts the edge of the veil, which covers hidden mysteries.” Another musician, responding to this many years ago, said, “And after this short moment the veil will sink back and cover again what is meant to be hidden anyway.” A truly intelligent answer.
The program will be split into 3 parts.

Schubert – a genius. His music – a light, far away in the dark. But it shines and one can only try to come closer. Not more.
