Life's Passions

Artist Showcase 3

Tickets from $28 | Seat Layout

Passion, intimacy, and drama will all be experienced in a program featuring two of the early Romantic era's most well-known composers. Festival Director Jeffrey Kahane and internationally renowned pianist and scholar Robert Levin team up to perform two Schubert piano duos—the mercurial and virtuosic Allegro in A Minor, popularly known as Lebensstürme (Storms of Life), and the gently rhapsodic Rondo in A Major. Beethoven's exhilarating Piano Trio in D Major, subtitled Ghost, may have been an early sketch for an opera based on Macbeth. The great pianist Walter Gieseking's delicate Sonatine for flute and piano completes the program.
