Compared with the music of his illustrious predecessors of the Viennese Classical movement, the music of Franz Schubert seems to wander. Where Haydn delights in springing surprises, Schubert allows himself to be surprised; where Beethoven illuminates a path through chaos, Schubert is our brother in life's mysteries. His harmonies fill us with wonder at every turn--our feet never stay grounded very long in any one key; episodes in major modes are mirages, shielding us only fleetingly from the darkening shadows without. Read on for programming details, stay tuned for spoken introductions, and mark Sunday November 14th at 2:30 pm for a Schubertiade concert at CUUC by Music Director Adam Kent.
