Schubert Revealed II

Wednesday, March 8, 2023

“Schubert Revealed,” a festival featuring three performances organized by Wu Han with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. “This festival looks at Schubert from three perspectives: the relationship between his incomparable lieder and his instrumental music; his influences and their effect on his compositions; and the consequence of his last efforts, which afforded him, eventually, the immortality he hoped so dearly for, and a secure place in the Pantheon of musical gods.” – Wu Han

Schubert Revealed II

Little Franz Schubert (he was barely five feet tall) observed the towering composers of his time and drew inspiration from their works. The ever-present giant in his life was Ludwig van Beethoven, his idol both artistically and as a composer of lasting consequence. Schubert was also duly entranced by the virtuosity and lyrical wizardry of Niccolò Paganini, who led Schubert to believe that nothing was impossible on the violin.
