Schubert Chamber Music 1 2017

Monday, July 17, 2:30 PM PDT

$12 – $30

Susan Waterfall will play Moments Musicaux and discuss the significance of Schubert’s “character pieces,” which, like lieder, suited the Romantic goals of intimacy and fantasy. Schubert’s exceptional ability to portray women in lieder will be demonstrated by soprano Julie Kierstine and pianist Daniel Lockert. The Octet, modeled on Beethoven’s popular Septet, is unusually outgoing, but its gaiety is outlined with Schubertian shadows. The Octet will be performed by the Festival Chamber Players.

Festival Chamber Players:

Jay Zhong, violin
Tammie Dyer, violin
Don Ehrlich, viola
Stephen Harrison, cello
Michael Taddei, contra bass
Eric Kritz, clarinet
Carolyn Lockhart, bassoon
Larry Lowe, horn


Understanding Schubert: Affirmations of Individualism

Susan Waterfall S14 200web

Join Susan Waterfall and an array of exceptional Festival musicians for three days of lectures and narrated concerts exploring the life and music of Schubert. The Vienna of Mozart and Beethoven changed with an increasingly large and regimented urban middle class. The inwardness of Schubert’s music mirrored the search for meaning in a world where nature was increasingly seen as the only solace.

“Waterfall’s productions always present exciting, absorbing playing of great music, but are also rare, distinctive examples of what can be called music education, though they’re more conversational, truly a sharing of perspective, interest, anecdote. There’s a sense of immediacy to her delivery, weaving in and out of the playing, an intimately conceived present awareness of this heritage. It’s something unique that needs to be experienced.” Ken Bullock, Berkeley Daily Planet
