MAGICAL SCHUBERT

January 28, 2021 | 7:30 PM

Bridging the Classical and Romantic music eras, the prolific Franz Schubert gave the world an astonishing wealth of compositions during his very short 31 years of life. In this program, CMS celebrates Schubert’s magical genius, barely recognized during his lifetime, with three of his most significant chamber music works: the lighthearted fantasy for Violin and Piano in C major, his splendid piano trio in B-flat major, No. 1, Op. 99, and his greatest piano duet, the Fantasie in F minor, a tragically beautiful farewell written during the final months of his life.

PROGRAM

Schubert Fantasie in F minor for Piano, Four Hands, D. 940, Op. 103
Schubert Fantasy in C major for Violin and Piano, D. 934, Op. 159
