Schubert Salon

2 hours
First broadcast:
Friday 23 March 2012

Suzy Klein launches The Spirit of Schubert. 200 hours of broadcasting and over a thousand performances. For 8 and a half days Radio 3 presents the biggest ever celebration of Schubert, his music and his life.

With performances of all his completed music and unique broadcasts of his unfinished works, the first of our daily In Tune Schubert Salons through the season comes live from Kings Place in London.

Each day from 4.30pm to 7.30pm the In Tune Schubert Salon includes live performance from leading Schubert interpreters.

Pianist, Graham Johnson is our guest curator and each day introduces listeners to Schubert songs. Today a selection of songs (including An die Musik and Ständchen) will be performed live by Ailish Tynan (soprano), Jennifer Johnston (mezzo), Robin Tritschler (tenor), and Marcus Farnsworth (baritone), with Graham Johnson at the piano. Plus the Doric Quartet will play movements from the Rosamunde Quartet, an ensemble from the Royal College of Music will perform movements from the Octet, Tom Service will be introducing his Schubert Lab which runs daily through the season and Sean Rafferty will be delivering his first Sonic Postcard from Schubert's home city of Vienna in a daily series giving listeners a vivid picture of Schubert's life and times.
