ROCK HILL, S.C. - Franz Schubert, the great romantic Viennese composer of symphony, song, chamber music and piano music, will be celebrated during a Nov. 6 concert on the Winthrop University campus.
Schubertiads, as they were known in Vienna, were held in the homes of the wealthy intelligentsia where the composer’s music was performed.
The concert, set for 7:30 p.m. in Barnes Recital Hall, is designed to recreate the concept of the Schubertiads in Vienna by the diversity of the programming that was typical of such an evening. The program will consist of chamber works, including the Fantasie in F minor for piano four-hands featuring pianists Matthew Manwarren and Ann Herlong. Soprano Jennifer Hough, along with pianist Manwarren and clarinetist Michael Hough, will present several well-known art songs, including The Shepherd on the Rock. The concert will conclude with Schubert’s Trout Quintet, featuring Manwarren, along with violinist Jane Hart Brendle, violist Nancy Levine, cellist Elizabeth Burns, and bassist Thomas Hildreth.
Admission to the concert is free. For more details, call 803/323-4639 or 803/323-2255.
