Piano evening - MARTIN STADTFELD

"Is it even possible to write music after Handel and Beethoven? Johannes Brahms asked himself this question again and again throughout his life. And time and again he succeeded in finding answers to the sounding legacy of the past. This is also the case in his magnificent variations on a theme by his hero George Frideric Handel.

For me, in its complexity, in its playful and creative approach to early music, one of the great works for the piano. Perhaps still somewhat underestimated, because not monumental. You have to listen to it, everything is play, spirit, response and experiment. This is what makes music fun. Schubert's last piano sonata, written in the year of the just 31 year old's death is a response of glory to a leaden time. In Metternich's state of informers, freedom of opinion and lively debate were not far off. There remained only the way inward, the longing for a better world and the dream.

Schubert creates dream images that lead us to ourselves and enable us to confront our inner selves. These are not process-like works like Beethoven's, but rather circling around a state. The slow movement is perhaps the most beautiful thing ever written for piano. Only Brahm's slow movement from the second piano concerto similarly brings tears to my eyes when I play it.... After playing this Schubert sonata one feels purified, hopeful, filled with new strength. To perhaps work on a better future."
