Nachtmusik - Franz Schubert (1797-1828) 

Part Songs and Lieder, Mass in G Major

Boyd Jarrell, director


Pairing the works of his favorite poets to lyrical and sublime music, Franz Schubert created the quintessential German art song, or Lied, that would come to define the genre.  The rich contrasts of this young genius are explored in a "Schubertiade" of rarely performed delights.  The hauntingly beautiful Nachtgesang im Wald (Nightsong of the Forest) calls for the atmospheric scoring of horn quartet to accompany the male chorus.  Paul Smith and Jeffrey Paul will provide piano accompaniment for the Lieder and part songs.  Also on the program are Schunbert's world-beloved Ave Maria and his Mass in G Major, a gentle yet majestic creation of an 18-year-old prodigy.  Join maestro Boyd Jarrell with the Marin Oratorio chorus and orchestra to hear tales of lovers sighing at dusk, nights in the forest, the thrilling and terrifying legent of the Erl-Konig, and more.
