In the final weeks of Franz Schubert's tragically short life, he wrote one of the great masterworks in all of chamber music — his Quintet in C Major. In this new five-part course, Jonathan Coopersmith, Chair of Musical Studies at the Curtis Institute of Music, explores the work in depth, as well as the creative burst that spawned it. Benjamin Britten called Schubert's last year and a half "the richest and most productive 18 months in our music history," producing not only the Quintet, but Winterreise, the C-Major Symphony, the B-Flat and E-Flat Piano Trios, the Mass in E-Flat, and the final three piano sonatas. Coopersmith looks at the genius of the Quintet, what made Schubert a musical groundbreaker, and his unique place in bridging the Classical and Romantic eras.

Composed to honour the 300th anniversary of the Augsburg Confession, a major event in the Protestant Reformation, Mendelssohn’s magnificent “Reformation” Symphony is sprinkled with the delicate, dance-like melodies with which the composer would come to be synonymous, and ends in a rousing chorale on Martin Luther’s beloved hymn, “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God”. Charismatic young Russian conductor Maxim Emelyanychev makes his TSO début in this program, which also features TSO Principal Clarinet Eric Abramovitz and TSO Clarinet and Bass Clarinet Miles Jaques in the sunny Concert Piece No. 2. Originally written as a memorial, Anna Clyne’s Within Her Arms captures a powerful meditation on loss—an elegy for strings that is at once mournful and full of hope. Maxim Emelyanychev, conductor Eric Abramovitz, clarinet Miles Jaques, basset horn

Enter Thebes…a city in crisis whose denizens are looking to one man for salvation: Oedipus Rex. But how can this man save anything when he’s unknowingly cursed by the gods? Can he escape his dark fate? The ancient Greek tragedy of the man who killed his father and married his mother is brought into the 20th century with a searing score by Igor Stravinsky in the opera-oratorio, Oedipus Rex. Jack Mulroney Music Director Corrado Rovaris leads the Opera Philadelphia Orchestra and Chorus, with soloists William Burden, Rehanna Thelwell, and Mark S. Doss. Before watching Oedipus fall, reflect on the loss of other guiding stars with Lilacs, George Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning meditation on grief and remembrance. This rarely-performed piece is a setting of Whitman’s poem, “When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d,” written after Lincoln’s assassination. In Lilacs, Walker commemorates famed Black tenor Roland Hayes. Rising soprano Tiffany Townsend performs as the soloist.

In 1802, on the brink of despair and suicide due to ever-increasing hearing loss, Beethoven poured out his feelings in a now-famous unsent letter to his brothers, confessing: “Only my art held me back. It seemed to me impossible to leave the world until I had produced all that I felt was within me.” From one of the darkest times of his life sprung some of his most life-affirming music—the jovial and fun-loving Symphony No. 2. Beethoven’s Second proved a fruitful muse for Odawa First Nation composer Barbara Assiginaak, whose Innenohr / Biinjii'ii Tawgaang meditates on the German master’s storied love of nature. Missy Mazzoli's evocative Dark with Excessive Bright also draws inspiration from the past, bringing baroque-era techniques into the 21st century through the skillful bow of Principal Double Bass Jeffrey Beecher.
