Vienna and Franz Schubert
Date & Time:
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
O’Shaughnessy Room (Room 108)
First-floor O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library
Our first noonartsound of the spring semester will be Tuesday, March 3 at noon in the O’Shaughnessy Room of the O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library.
Our very creative and entertaining presenters, Shelly-Nordtorp Madson and Chris Kachian continue to transport us to another time with noonartsound and we are especially fortunate that they will be joined by David Jenkins on the piano. You will be treated to stories of Vienna, the clothing, the art, and manners of the time, as well as the music of Franz Schubert.
Chris and Shelly describe their talk this way: “Romantic Vienna, the most musical city in the western world, claims most of the great composers of the 18th and 19th centuries. One musician and music writer of the early 19th century was Franz Schubert, the favorite of the Romantic movement and a society filled with waltzers and consumptive, over-corseted ladies carrying smelling salt containers and subsiding onto fainting couches. The setting of Vienna is sublime and the music no less so – if a bit lugubrious. Bring your silver vinaigrettes with you!”
We hope you will join us – you’ll hear guitar and piano performing the entire “Arpeggione Sonata” along with other surprises.
