Description

A 20th century classic side by side with Schubert at the summit: Often described as a Post-Modern Gershwin or Jewish Ives, Paul Schoenfield combines ingredients of jazz, klezmer and whimsy in his irresistible, irreverentCafé Music. Schubert's final year was staggeringly productive. The B-Flat opus 99 captures the meteoric luminosity of his inevitable death, as well as his inimitable melodic lyricism. Both composers utilize folklore and the point of departure for each is the easy charm of the institution of the Viennese café. Violinist Erin Keefe (hailed as “an impressive violin soloist” by The New York Times) and award-winning pianist Jeffrey Swann join for this evening of fascinating contrasts.
