Schubert & Co. (see also Event 35) are joined by Natasha Loges to explore the importance of social gatherings to Schubert and his circle, and the music he wrote for these occasions. In Metternich’s Vienna, public expression of anything considered liberal or radical could be difficult or even dangerous. For free-thinking artists and intellectuals, private gatherings were not merely convivial occasions, but an opportunity for creativity and the exchange of ideas. Thus it is perhaps not surprising that among the many dances and drinking songs can also be found some of Schubert’s most personal and sublime music.
