Leeds International Chamber Season 2018/19: Schubert and Friends
Rainer Honeck - violin
Sam Haywood - piano
Mozart - Violin Sonata K454 Listen
Strauss - Violin Sonata Listen
Schubert - Fantasy in C major Listen
The final recital of the series is a celebration of the incredibly rich musical output of Vienna. Home to
Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and so many more great composers, it is the birth place of some of the finest chamber, orchestral and operatic music of the Western Classical tradition.
“We finish with a tribute to Vienna, where Schubert lived and died. I spent some of the happiest years of my life studying in this magical, musical city. I later met and performed with the leader of the great Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, Rainer Honeck. Given the orchestra’s schedule, I couldn’t believe
that he was free to perform in this series. Mozart also lived and died in Vienna. I find his Sonata for Piano and Violin in B flat highly operatic in character. Richard Strauss’s Violin Sonata, on the other hand, has an orchestral feel – reminiscent of his tone poems. Strauss was Musical Director of the Vienna State Opera for a time and lived for part of World War II in the city. Schubert’s epic Fantasy in C major is a fitting way to finish the series. It includes variations on the theme of one of his most beautiful songs and finishes with a rousing march.” Sam Haywood - Artistic Director.
