Schubert's Farewell

  • UKARIA, South Australia (map)

Paul Wright (violin), Michael Dahlenburg (cello) and Caroline Almonte (piano) play Turina, Mascitti and Schubert.

‘What was in the Paris water that enabled Italian Baroque composer Michele Mascitti and late 19th century Spanish composer Joaquín Turina – both of whom lived in the great capital for a time – to write music of such lyrical beauty? Both composers preserved their respective nationalistic traits, but it is in the music of Turina that we hear the influence of his contemporaries, Debussy and Ravel. While the works of these composers exudes a concise youthful vitality it is in the music of Franz Schubert’s E flat piano trio that we find a profound breadth of vision and melodic beauty so typical of the great song master! Schubert heard only one public concert of his music in his lifetime. The E flat trio was one of the inclusions in that program.’
