“Wednesday Lunchtime Concerts” 10 November 12.40-1.20pm. Impromptu Schubert. Pianist Mark Jurkiewicz performing Franz Schubert’s Four Impromptus, D.935 (Op 142). Schubert composed these impromptus in December 1827 having just completed another set of four (D. 899) in the same year — all possibly as pieces for himself to play at musical soirées. The word ‘impromptu’ suggests spontaneity. We can imagine Schubert creating these works as he extemporised at the keyboard but, in fact, their formal structure and sophistication suggests considerable thought. Their most outstanding qualities are their melody and lyricism, leavened, no doubt, by Schubert’s life-long experience of song writing, placing them amongst Schubert’s most-loved works for piano. Entry $10 (includes program & refreshments). Additional donations welcome. BOOK at: BOOK HERE or ph. 6232 7248
