Schubert's Instrumental Music - A Listener's Guide: Unlocking the Masters Series, No. 19 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In this survey of Schubert's instrumental music, John Bell Young explores some of the richest and most memorable music ever written. How, Young asks, did the prolific composer of the C major String Quintet and more than a thousand other masterpieces manage to achieve so much in a career that spanned less than two decades? Was the devastating illness that alienated him from society and eventually killed him in any way responsible for the furious pace at which he worked? And do all thematic roads in Schubert's instrumental music ultimately lead to his great song cycle Winterreise, and its romantic panacea of longing and demise? Young's colorful analyses of a representative swath of Schubert's greatest orchestral, piano, and chamber works deftly illuminate these issues. HIGHLIGHT * An accompanying CD features superb performances by pianists Jerome Rose, Paul Badura-Skoda, Juana Zayas, and Albert Frantz, as well as the Alban Berg String Quartet.
