Music evoking swirling water by Debussy, Schubert and Clara Schumann from the 49th Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival in Eastern Finland. Sarah Walker presents.

Sarah Walker presents music evoking swirling water by Debussy, Schubert and Clara Schumann from the 49th Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival in Eastern Finland. Today's performers include Vladimir Mendelssohn, the Festival's Director, playing viola in Schubert's Gesang der Geister über den Wassern (Song of the Spirits over the Waters), setting words by Goethe. The dark timbres of the scoring, for men's voices, violas, cellos and double bass, underpin some of Schubert's most arresting harmonies.
