Program

Schubert and Beethoven both lived in Vienna, but had different degrees of luck; while Beethoven premiered his works in the best theatres, Schubert would be satisfied if his were performed by friends in the home of one or another of his peers. At the same time, Ferran Sor's music —a Frenchified Catalan guitarist who fled post-Napoleonic Spain— as enjoying its finest moment with premieres in Paris, London, Berlin and Moscow. In Tsarist Russia, Sor premiered his own version of Cinderella, with his wife Felicité Hullin as choreographer and lead dancer. The show inaugurated what would eventually become the most famous theatre in Moscow: the Bolshoi.

Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang was expected to be performing in this concert but unfortunately has had to cancel her week of appearances at L’Auditori. Her agent has released a statement saying that, “she has a particularly intense period of concerts and has decided to reduce her itinerary for health reasons.
