CONFERENCE CYCLE SCHUBERTIADA
COMPOSING IN THE FACE OF DEATH: SCHUBERT'S LAST SONATAS
By Miguel Ángel Marín
Date: September 1
Time: 19.30 h.
Place: House of canons of Santa Maria de Vilabertran
Free conference with the ticket of the day concert.
In the imagination of many enthusiasts, Franz Schubert (1797-1828) appears before a piano. The iconography developed throughout the nineteenth century, consisting of an array of real or ficitonal portraits and group scenes, persistently portray the same image: a composer embracing the piano as the most intimate means of expression. The instrument plays a leading role in his official repertoire, a reflection of the importance it held within his creative poetics. This conference will outline the main strokes of his sonata repertoire, placing particular emphasis on his last sonatas.
