Schubert on the Bluff, Year 3
- PNC Recital Hall
Concert IX: Octet
There will be no pre-concert talk.
Schubert's tuneful Octet headlines our season opener, contrasting with the dramatic and turbulent Piano Sonata in C Minor. Debussy composed three "chamber sonatas" during World War I, and all three will be presented this season; the Sonata for Cello and Piano explores the composer's reactions to the horrors in the world around him in a work of wistfulness and humor.
