Call to Reflection: Schubertiade

Presented in collaboration with LIEDER ALIVE!


It was with a Schubertiade that the piano festival opened its inaugural season in 2017, and we return to Schubert for reflection and healing in the midst of a turbulent world. Mezzo-soprano Kindra Scharich and pianist Jeffrey LaDeur will share a selection of Schubert’s most beautiful lieder, exploring themes of hope, love, loss, and the ephemeral nature of time. Robert Schumann wrote that Schubert’s Sonata in G Major was his “most perfect in form and conception”, and this performance will intersperse its four expansive movements throughout the evening.
