ChamberFest Cleveland: Highlights from Schubert Journeys

Featured Audio

Recorded Friday, July 1 at Reinberger Chamber Hall at Severance Hall.

Not all musical tales portray a specific series of events. Schubert’s music leaves much unsaid while speaking volumes as it travels on eloquent and dramatic paths. Suspense certainly surrounds his Quartettsatz, the first movement of an unfinished string quartet. An entirely different side of Schubert can be heard in his ebullient and lyrical Octet for winds and strings, whose six movements offer a cavalcade of tales, some drawn from the composer’s own songs. A more contemporary approach to sonic storytelling is encapsulated in Kurt Rohde’s 2011 work, misterioso … maestoso, for amplified violin and viola, and assorted items (curious yet?).
