Groupmuse Superhost

Cristian Budu is not just one of the most celebrated pianists in the world. He’s also one of the original inspirations behind Groupmuse and among our deepest and dearest friends. We’re so grateful to spend a Christmas Groupmuse with the great virtuoso, as he spins one of the most profound and precious tune tales ever told: Franz Schubert’s massive last sonata, D. 960 in B♭ major.

In its fullness, it’s over 40 minutes long, and in Budu’s hands, it’s a testament to just how beautiful the Universe can be. Cristian will be there for the before- and after-Zoom and we hope you’ll join us!

Both this performance and our Christmas Eve with Benedict Kloeckner have been generously underwritten by a small community of patrons — so all of the money raised for this groupmuse will go to the Groupmuse Foundation and will be fully tax-deductible.

What's the music?

Franz Schubert
Piano Sonata in B♭ major, D. 960
