Academy Song Circle: Schubertiade

Wednesday, 31.01.2018 19:30, David Josefowitz Recital Hall

Tickets: £7.50 (concessions £5.50) from the Academy’s Box Office

The Academy Song Circle presents a programme of Lieder composed in 1815, when the 18-year-old Schubert’s love affair with Therese Grob ended. This was also the time that the composer escaped the drudgery of his father’s school by going to live with his friend Franz von Schober. During this year he dedicated a volume of his Lieder to Goethe and composed no fewer than 100 songs, including such masterpieces as the first version of Goethe’s ‘An den Mond’, ‘An Schwager Kronos’, ‘Erlkönig’ and ‘Nähe des Geliebten’.
