Adam Laloum opens this season's Sunday Morning Concerts cycle on Schubert's Last Journey.
SCHUBERT'S LAST JOURNEY I
Schubert Four Impromptus op. posth. 142 D. 935
Brahms Sonata No. 3 op. 5
Hypersensitive, Adam Laloum? "In concert, I try to be present in body and mind [...] Everything can be transformed into emotion". Emotion is always present when he plays Schubert and Brahms, two of his oldest companions. The publisher Schott must have been biting his fingers for a long time for having refused the Impromptus D. 935 that the author of La Belle Meunière sent him a few months before his death. They may appear to you as the four movements of a sonata that does not say its name, as Schumann intended them to be. Instead, he called the Opus 5 by a young Hamburg admirer known as the “Chosen One” a “symphony in disguise”. And here was Johannes, at just twenty years of age.
