Franz Schubert’s Viennese admirers hosted “Schubertiades” – fun gatherings where the composer and his friends performed his music. Though he died before his 32nd birthday in 1828, Schubert-lovers throughout the world have continued to hold Schubertiades to this day. Please join us for our Schubertiade in the park – an informal concert with pianist Lydia Frumkin who will share her love of Schubert by performing his remarkable music for piano.
Pianist Lydia Frumkin is Professor Emerita at the Oberlin College Conservatory and faculty member of the Washington Conservatory of Music. Music and Time Magazine wrote "Lydia Frumkin is one of those remarkable musicians whose virtuosity is leavened with romantic sweep, depth of feeling and delicate touch...Her performances are infused with a refreshing element of improvisation." She has given concert, TV, and radio performances throughout the former Soviet Union, Europe, Canada, Mexico, and in US and collaborated with internationally-known performers, including members of the St. Petersburg String Quartet and Cleveland Orchestra Quartet.
Performing music of Franz Schubert in an informal setting.
