Schubertiade Hohenems 2014: Programme change
At short notice, Igor Levit has decided to change the disposition of his Beethoven sonata cycle, which will affect the upcoming Schubertiade Hohenems recital on May 2. The amended programme will feature the following works:
Sonata in F-sharp, op. 78; Sonata in C-sharp minor, op. 27/2 »Moonlight«; Sonata in E, op. 14/1; Sonata in G, op. 14/2; Sonata in C minor, op. 13 »Pathétique«
Schubertiade Schwarzenberg 2014:
Cast and programme change
In view of the short period of time between the estimated due date of her second child and her Schwarzenberg recital on June 22, 2014, Annette Dasch has decided with regret to cancel her Schubertiade participation. We are delighted to announce that tenor Piotr Beczala will give a recital in Mrs. Dasch's place, thus making his Schubertiade debut one season earlier than projected. The programme with Kristin Okerlund at the piano will include Robert Schumann's »Dichterliebe«, as well as selected lieder by Franz Schubert, Antonín Dvořák, Mieczyslaw Karlowicz and Sergej Rachmaninov.
Tickets already purchased may be exchanged or returned no later than May 31, 2014.
