Liebesbotschaft means “Message of Love”, which is a perfect description of Franz Schubert’s music. There are songs of nature, songs of longing and loss, songs of death and spirits, songs of love and hope…all Liebesbotschaften from the composer who brought about the Romantic Period in music. Schubert composed more than six hundred songs as well as seven complete symphonies, several operas, incidental music, and a huge body of piano and chamber music before early death at the age of 31.


Each of the four concerts will be organized into several themes, based on class members’ curation, with the objective to revel in the depth and beauty of Schubert’s songs.


The four performances will be held in Recital Room N-1 at the following times:

Sunday, October 29, 2023, 8pm

Sunday, November 12, 2023, 3pm

Sunday, December 3, 2023, 8pm
