Selby & Friends: Hindson & Schubert
23 August @ 17:00 - 18:00$57 – $75
The surprising connection between the three works on this program is wartime conflict and how it impacted each composer.
In the case of Australian Matthew Hindson composing in 2015, he was propelled by the mere thought of how a young person in 1915 might face the prospect of going to war.
Most people don’t think of Schubert in terms of conflict, but in fact, he was surrounded by the threat of war during the Napoleonic era throughout his short life. One may never know the true impact this had on him and whether his penchant for song grew from a desire to avoid conflict and embrace love and beauty.
Joining pianist Kathryn Selby in this exploration will be Sophie Rowell and Timo-Veikko Valve.
