So, what is a Schubertiade? In Schubert's time, they were often informal gatherings at private homes, often with the composer present. Patrons would host evenings of food, drink and then retire to their salons for the sharing of lovely music. This could be songs, solo piano, string quartets or quintets, poetry readings and more. While a Schubertiade is primarily focused on the namesake composer, it is also a chance to celebrate the composers who were his contemporaries. These evenings are evocative of a time when people gathered together to share music made in their home. After Schubert's death, the tradition continued, but, with time, Schubertiade's became more formal, recital style performances. For our evening of music, we are very happy to return to the more intimate salon styLe in the charm of Caleb Pike Heritage House. This intimate venue is ideal our evening of music, with tea, coffee and conversation, much as it would have happened in Schubert's day.
