In Concert With CMS: Schubert and Strauss

In this episode of “In Concert With CMS,” you’ll hear Schubert’s “Der Hirt auf dem Felsen,” or “The Shepherd on the Rock.” Created in the composer's final months, this song features poetry by Wilhelm Müller and Helmina von Chézy, and a clarinet part that mirrors the singer’s phrases. We end with Strauss’s ambitious “Piano Quartet in C minor,” a Brahms-ian work of technical and melodic invention.
