Social music-making in Schubert's Vienna

11 March 2018, 4:45pm - 5:30pm

Ahead of this evening’s ‘Schubertiade’, Natasha Loges introduces the backdrop of social music making in Schubert’s circle and Vienna more widely. Much of Schubert's music was written to perform in the company of his friends, from jovial drinking songs to profound masterpieces, but was this purely characteristic of Schubert's nature, or was it the only outlet reliably open to him, or was it an escape from the iron rule of Metternich? In any case, the tradition of the 'Schubertiade' is one to savour today and this talk by the ever-insightful Natasha Loges will illuminate the final concert of the Spring Weekend of Song.

The Spring Weekend Pass is an excellent-value way to attend all events across the weekend, saving money and time in booking, and allowing you to immerse yourself in song. Book here.
