Schubert’s Spell - Who was Franz Schubert?

Schubert Lieder - Year 1

To supplement the series featuring the complete lieder of Schubert at Bourgie Hall, over the coming seasons Jean Portugais will give a series of lectures on the composer’s lieder and focus on this exceptional Viennese composer. This first lecture will seek to understand Schubert’s personality and character in connection with his abundant art song production.

Presented in French

In connection with the concert of Ian Bostridge and Julius Drake the same day at 7:30 p.m. Click here for more details.

Schubert’s Spell series of lecture
Collegial yet solitary, tormented yet even-tempered, Franz Schubert (1797-1828) remains one of music's most phenomenal figures. Nearly two centuries after his death, this composer’s prolific output—a thousand compositions in just a few years—continues to astound with its unique melodic sense, to surprise with its daring, and to enchant with its poetic magic and atmosphere of eternity.
The aim of this series of lectures is to provide biographical, musical, literary, and socio-historical insights into Schubert’s art of the lied.
