DEBUSSY: Sonata for Violin and Piano in g minor
R STRAUSS: Four Last Songs
SCHUBERT: Cello Quintet in C Major, Op 163, D 956
This program features works written in the final year of each composer’s life — and each reflects a different take on the expected and impending end of life. There are flashes of mystery and brilliant light in the Debussy and Schubert works, whereas the Strauss provides a sense of calm and acceptance.
