One of the greatest composers of the late Classical and early Romantic eras, Franz Schubert, will be celebrated at a special Discovery Concert Series performance at the Rancho Bernardo Library. The free performance at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 10 will include Schubert poetry, singers performing his art songs, and chamber music. The performance will be in the second-floor library community room.
The concert will include readings of the poem, which Schubert set to music in one of his more than 600 songs or lieder. Singers from the studio of Ines Irawati will present “Die Forelle” and other Schubert lieder to demonstrate the style of the art song. Finally, a quintet gathered from the area chamber music scene will play Schubert’s entire Piano Quintet, op. 111. The quintet consists of a piano (Bob Hart), violin (Wendy Loeb), viola (Clara Oberle), cello (Millie Boaz), and bass (Park Carmon).
The Discovery Concerts serve to educate the public about various music forms and to expand the opportunity for local musicians to perform. All ages are welcome.
