Clara SCHUMANN Romance No. 1, op. 22 for Violin and Piano
Franz SCHUBERT Piano Quintet in A major, D. 667 ‘Trout quintet’
Adult – $45
Concession – $41
Under 30 – $30
Our first Chamber Classics concert pays homage to Clara Schumann and Franz Schubert, masters of the Romantic style. Sadly, neither enjoyed due recognition in their time: Schubert suffered an untimely death before his work could garner wider acclaim, while Clara Schumann’s career was curtailed by the rigid gender roles of the nineteenth century.
The program opens with Clara Schumann’s yearning Romance for Violin and Piano. Giving equal voice to both instruments, this moving work weighs heavy with nostalgia and a melancholy that lingers beyond the final notes.
Known affectionately as the ‘Trout quintet’, Schubert’s piano quintet playfully extends the musical ideas from his earlier, beloved Lied, Die Forelle (The Trout). The composer was just 22 at its writing: this cheerful work beams with the exuberance of youth.
