Pasadena Schubertiade
Sublime Schubert
February 21, 2015

Showtime: 8pm

A special concert created to honor the music of Franz Schubert as part of the annual Pasadena Schubertiade, now in its 4th year.

Pasadena Schubertiade was born in 2012 when co-founders Stephen Grimm and Christina Soule created the first festival as a project of the Pasadena Pro Musica. The mission of the Pasadena Schubertiade is to create an intimate and informal annual chamber music festival that entertains and educates. As the Pasadena Schubertiade grows it is our intention to collaborate with other Pasadena arts organizations to create a city wide Arts Festival, inspired by the repertoire of Herr Franz Schubert.

A pre-show discussion on Franz Schubert will begin at 7:15pm.

Tickets: $25/$20 for seniors

Franz Liszt, Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms and Felix Mendelssohn, among others, discovered and championed his works in the 19th century. Today, Schubert is seen as one of the leading exponents of the early Romantic era in music and he remains one of the most frequently performed composers. 

Schubert’s Compositional Style

Melodic Invention: Schubert had a completely distinctive and unique gift for spontaneous, lyrical, charming melodic invention. His melodies include some of the most famous in all Western music, and often express tremendous joy, but can also convey dark mood swings and deep despair.

Harmonic Originality: Schubert often explores wildly unusual key relationships, with a penchant for modulations into distant harmonic territory.

Luxurious Spaciousness of Form: Schubert stretched Classical sonata form to its absolute limits. His expositions usually feature a bewildering array of thematic material, presented in highly imaginative key relationships.
