Around Schubert

The Nash Ensemble perform music by Schubert and his contemporaries Weber and Spohr.

Live from the Wigmore Hall, London.

Presented by Andrew McGregor.

The Nash Ensemble, Wigmore Hall’s chamber Ensemble in Residence, places the music of Franz Schubert at the centre of its series ‘Around Schubert’, along with works by his contemporaries. This first concert includes two of Schubert’s chamber music masterpieces, the single string quartet movement in C minor and the buoyant ‘Trout’ Quintet with double bass. The outstanding French mezzo Stéphanie d’Oustrac sings some of Weber’s arrangements of Scottish folksongs, along with a Spohr ‘romance’ which was a favourite in the Victorian era, and a group of Schubert songs which are favourites for all time.
