Exploring Music
with Bill McGlaughlin
Schubertiade II - This title refers to a type of "homemade" music that became popular during Schubert's time: chamber music. This week we pick up this theme in order to hear compositions by one of the namesakes of this intimate genre, Franz Schubert himself. Bill will share with us several pieces Schubert wrote based on the poems of Wilhelm Müller. These are about a young man who falls in love at first sight and then experiences the loss of love and the collapse of the world.
