Onslow and Schubert

Sypert Salon Series

Performance

Chamber Music

Onslow – String Quartet in F-Sharp Minor, Op. 46, No. 1
Schubert – Piano Trio in B-Flat Major, Op. 99 (D. 898)

To end the season, the Sypert Salon Series pays tribute to a composer whose legacy fell victim to the fickleness of fame—Georges Onslow. While his work was deeply admired by Beethoven, Schubert and Schumann, Onslow’s music was largely forgotten between World War I and the bicentennial of his birth in 1984. Since that time, Onslow’s contributions to chamber music have been rediscovered to the delight of audiences everywhere. His String Quartet Op. 46 is characterized by its melodic charm, narrative drama and inventive use of the cello, Onslow’s instrument. The program concludes with Schubert’s triumphant Piano Trio No. 1—a monumental work that prompted Schubert champion Robert Schumann to write, “one glance and the troubles of our human existence disappear and all the world is fresh and bright again.”

This performance is part of the Sypert Salon chamber music series.

Sponsored by a generous gift from Drs. George Sypert & Joy Arpin.
