Franz Schubert: The Early Romantic Spirit

The Royal Conservatory

Thursdays, 1-3pm

October 12 - November 16

Although Franz Schubert (1797 -1828) lived a short life in Vienna of only 31 years, he left us a marvelous treasure chest of songs, piano music, chamber music and symphonies. With a natural gift for melody, Schubert brought a fresh, expressive and more emotional quality to his works, as the burgeoning 19th century Romantic trend in the arts developed into the full-fledged movement. Exhibiting innocence, passion, sorrow, joy and playfulness, the Viennese have long claimed that Schubert should be experienced with "one eye dry, the other wet." Using classic recordings from the past and present, Rick Phillips will present an informative and enlightening series, opening eyes and ears to Schubert's marvelous musical world.
