Dear Friends and Members of the Sydney Schubert Society,
The year is about to close and we are looking to convene for our final Schubertiade on December 7 at 2.30pm at the Goethe Institute, Woollahra. For this last gathering we are fortunate to welcome two of Sydney’s very best: Pianists Daniel Herscovitch and Clemens Leske perform with “four hands” some of Schubert’s wonderful music in this genre plus additional masterworks for an orchestral exploration of the sonority of the piano. I attach a flyer about the program and invite you and your friends very warmly to attend. You will agree that this Schubertiade will be a feast for Schubert lovers as the piano music for four hands features substantially in Schubert’s work and opens a unique vista towards the composer’s imagination. We will hear late works, including the famous Fantasie f minor and the Duo in a minor-performed with virtuosity by two magnificent artists who have compiled this program with much thoughtfulness. I am looking forward to seeing you there!
Please make a note of our draft dates for 2015: We are looking to hold Schubertiades on April 26, July 5, August 16 (including AGM), October 18 and December 6 in 2015 pending confirmation of all venues and artists. Our website will contain the most up-to-date information shortly.
Finally, Ross Hayes’ is calling for your nomination of Schubert’s top-ten Lieder from you. Please email Ross directly yourlist of your top ten at firstname.lastname@example.org!
I am looking forward to seeing you on December 7 at the Goethe Institute for a Schubertian feast involving four hands and some feet to celebrate a year with Schubert’s music,
With warm greetings and very best regards,
Sydney Schubert Society Inc.
