“Hide yourself, o sun, – for the glow of bliss” These are the exclamations that give tension to the song “Auflösung” (Dissolution), lyrics written by one of Schubert’s most intimate friends, the gloomy Johann Mayrhofer. A recurring phrase of his poetry is farewell, and it is not a coincidence that Schubert melodized almost fifty of his poems. Nevertheless pathetic and sometimes self-regretting gestures are far from the composer. His last compositions (the series of songs published under the title Swan-Songs, the three piano sonatas and the Quintet in C Major) rather represent the spirit of an epitome and harvesting. Schubert has never feared of the unknown hereafter, moreover, he felt he may expect a much better life than this one. “Deep in the dark night of the forest you find home” – the composer’s mystique works for male choir that resemble a rite of passage.

Der Morgen, der Tag, die Nacht – this is the syllabus of the Schubert series starting this autumn. WIth this series of three concertos, we continue the highly successful Beethoven series of the orchestra.
