A mini Schubertiade on this Whit Monday morning!
Various facets of this composer are highlighted. The impromptu for piano solo and the sonatina for violin and piano show his mastery for beautiful miniatures, moving in their simplicity.
Schubert was known as a songwriter, and it inspired Belgian composer Jean-Luc Fafchamps to write a seven-song cycle with a slow progression from Schubert to his own music.
Plus a special reunion between two fantastic pianists. After studying together in Moscow, old friends Madzar and Melnikov meet in Halloy and play Schubert’s beautiful variations for four hands.
