In an era when virtuosity seemed to prevail in the realm of instrumental music, many composers took to the Lied (a German poem set to music) as an alternative genre of expression. Yet, their songs were not always confined to those with words; its influence also infiltrated instrumental music. Our program explores Schubert and Beethoven’s most cantabile – or singable – chamber works including Schubert’s Grand Duo for Violin and Piano, D. 574 and Beethoven’s renowned ‘Archduke’ Trio, Opus 97. The lyricism in both works expose their inspiration from the Lied – conceived with the human voice and its expressions in mind.
