In 2018 it will be 190 years since the death of the great Austrian composer Franz Schubert. The European Foundation for Support of Culture together with the ArtEnsemble (Italy) will organize an evening in memory of the renowned composer. The event will take place with the support of the Marrucino Theatre in Chieti.
Franz Peter Schubert is one of the founders of Romanticism
in music, author of approximately 600 Lieder (to the poetry
of Schiller, Goethe, Heine and others), nine symphonies,
and a large body of chamber and solo piano music. Schubert’s
compositions have not lost their popularity and they are among
the most famous classical music works.
Famous pianists will perform at the jubilee evening of Franz
Schubert, among them Alexander Kobrin, the winner of several
international competitions, including the Busoni International
Piano Competition and the Van Cliburn International Piano
Competition, participant of numerous music festivals, such as
the international festival marking the 100th anniversary of Sergei
Prokofiev. On the Marrucino stage, Kobrin will perform the most
famous compositions by Franz Peter Schubert and Ludwig van
Beethoven who was a favourite of the composer.
