Andreas Boyde – Sturm und Drang: Young Titans
Wednesday, April 21, 7:00 PM (AEST)
The three works reflect a tempestuous and passionate time in the lives of young Brahms and Schumann respectively, finding their musical voices whilst learning from the poetic masters. Schumann’s ‘Schubert’ Variations and Carnaval are inspired by Schubert waltzes, Brahms’ Op. 4 is reminiscent of Chopin’s Scherzo. And yet, both composers instantaneously moulded their unique and unmistakable language, moving away from their models. Three masterpieces by two geniuses.
