Program

Yes
Marvin Wolfthal

Robert Schumann – Romanze, op. 28, No. 2
Arnold Schoenberg – Five Pieces, op. 23
Franz Schubert – Impromptu in G flat, D. 899, No. 3
Claude Debussy – La cathédrale engloutie
Frederic Chopin – Barcarolle, op. 60

The piano is a percussion instrument, yet in the works of its greatest composers, it can seem to transcend its physical limitations, just as a black and white photograph can suggest color.

The Schubert and Schumann pieces evoke the human voice, in the latter a duet. Schoenberg’s Five Pieces (of which the delicate final waltz was the first piece to be written using the 12-tone method) explores a range of instrumental color from strings and winds to the full orchestra.

In Debussy’s “sunken cathedral” we hear bells, plainchant and a full organ. Chopin’s Barcarolle, one of his last and greatest works, is a Venetian boat song sung in a gondola that travels from a tranquil canal to the open sea.
