Wistaria Chamber Music Society presents its

10th annual

Schubertiad

Music by Franz Schubert for voice, piano and violin

SUNDAY, MARCH 29, 2015, 4 PM.


The Unitarian-Universalist Society  *  Main Street, Northampton, MA.  

 

The Austrians call it gemütlichkeit. We’d call it the groove. It’s the warm fellow-feeling when you get together with friends to make or listen to music.  It’s encapsulated in Schubert’s warm, buoyant, sometimes wistful music, which was written for informal gatherings of his friends.


It’s been 10 years since Wistaria began exploring the music of Franz Schubert with an annual Schubertiad (as the composer’s friends called these concerts), and we have only skimmed the composers’ 1,000 works for voice, piano and piano duo, and chamber ensemble. On Saturday, February 15, at 7:30 p.m., Wistaria returns for an early evening concert that recalls the chamber evenings of early 19th-century Vienna. With refreshments. Admission: $20 at the door.  Free for students. Bring a friend and one gets in free.
