In the Footsteps of the Romantic Masters 4
August 24, 2013
Schumann, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Schubert—they need no introduction; their works are as beloved as they are familiar. But 19th-century Europe was rich in gifted composers today overshadowed by better-known contemporaries who praised and influenced their compositions. It’s illuminating, sometimes surprising, and always enjoyable to hear worthy but unfamiliar works performed beside Romantic benchmarks, and to trace the interconnections among less familiar composers and the musical giants who were their mentors, colleagues, and friends.
The series finale features Franz Schubert's heavenly Piano Trio in B-flat major and "The Shepherd on the Rock" as well as works by his friends, Jan Václav Voríšek and Franz Lachner.
