About the Event
In this highly-anticipated concert, hear the mellifluous sounds of classical music by Schubert and Brahms at Barcelona's treasured and world-renowned Auditori de Barcelona.
During his rather short life, Franz Schubert, one of the fathers of romanticism in music, had always been an unappreciated genius who had never received public acclaim. Only his family and friends were delighted by his music, and most of his works were discovered and published only many years after his death. Franz Schubert was born on the 31th of March 1797 in the suburbs of Vienna. His father and eldest brother were amateur musicians and they taught him to play piano and violin. At the age of 11 Schubert was a singer in a choir at the Lichtenthal parish and later auditioned for Antonio Salieri and admitted to the emperor’s choir. During that period young Franz started composing his own works.
However, after his voice broke he had to leave the choir and in 1814 he started working as a teacher in the same parish school as his father. He never stopped composing and 4 years later he decided to quit teaching and devote his life completely to music. He fell out with his father because of that and struggled to make ends meet. In 1818 Schubert went to Vienna, where he met Vogl. Together they gave private concerts in small aristocratic circles, mainly playing Lieder, which Schubert wrote around 600. Franz Schubert gave only one big public concert in his whole life in March 1828, which was very warmly received by the audience. However, his health was deteriorating and in November the same year he died of thyroid fever at the age of 31.
Johannes Brahms was a German composer and pianist of the 19th century who influenced the music of the Romantic period. He composed for voice, piano, symphony orchestra, chamber ensembles and chorus. In fact, his reputation as a composer grouped him with Beethoven and Bach as one of the three Bs of music, in other words one of the greatest figures of classical music. As a matter of fact, Brahms worked with leading performers such as Clara Schumann and Joseph Joachim. As a result, many of his works became staples of the modern repertoire for their uncompromising perfectionism.
