Schubert Marathon

One day – three concerts

Blue shadow of a flower

Schubert’s chamber music is a cosmos in itself. With its beguiling, bittersweet melodies and expressive harmonic language, it plumbs the depths of human emotions and existence: joy and sorrow, love and loss, closeness and loneliness. In our Schubert Marathon, members of the Berliner Philharmoniker can immerse you in these musical landscapes of the soul, from Schubert’s early string trios to his late String Quintet in C major, and including works like his effervescent “Trout” Quintet and his transcendent “Death and the Maiden” Quartet.
