Concert 7 - Final / 14:00

“Timeless...”

A festive finale filled with the most profound and human music ever written. Who is not moved by the opening bars of Schubert’s Fantasie for four-hands piano? Beethoven’s late string quartet opus 131 was his own favourite work, and when Schubert heard it he sighed: “after this piece, what is there left to write?” To close Resonances, Bach’s unsurpassed six-part Ricercar. Timelessly beautiful music…
