Information on the change of artists
For health reasons, Daniel Barenboim has been forced to cancel his participation in the Schubertiade on Whitsun Monday (29 May, 3 pm). The original plan was for Daniel Barenboim to play four-hand piano works by Franz Schubert with Martha Argerich. Therefore, Martha Argerich will not perform at the Schubertiade either.
The Festival is delighted to announce that Lucas and Arthur Jussen have agreed to perform the Fantasy in F-minor and the Allegro in A-minor “Lebensstürme” at the Schubertiade – both works for four-hand piano.
The programme of the Schubertiade also includes the following:
The Artistic Director Cecilia Bartoli will perform Schubert songs with Lang Lang</strong, as will the chorus Il Canto di Orfeo under Gianluca Capuano’s baton. Mélissa Petit will take on the soprano part in the Schubert cantata Mirjams Siegesgesang. Lucas and Arthur Jussen will provide the piano accompaniment for Schubert’s choral songs and the cantata.
