Great Schubert

The Gildas Quartet with Alexander Baillie, cello will be performing in St Oswald's Church, Sowerby on Saturday 8 April at 7.30pm. This is a terrific opportunity to hear Schubert's late masterpiece - the C major String Quintet, D956. A monumental work completed just two months before his tragically early death, it had to wait 25 years for its first performance. It contains the lengthy and sublime Adagio, sometimes turbulent, sometimes tranquil and surrounded by swirling tensions and releases in all four movements. The Schubert is preceded by Korngold's 2nd Quartet in Eflat - a much shorter and jollier piece. Korngold was exiled to America in 1933 just after writing this quartet - as a Jew, he was no longer safe in Vienna. These two pieces are more or less 100 years apart.
