"How many concerts
have the narrative
power of exciting
theater?
How
many concerts
offer such a rich
sense of discovering
new and vital music?
This is what we want all
concerts to be, though
we know it rarely
happens. An evening
of discovery and
enchantment,
a
reminder of how
illuminating a journey
a great song can be."

Theo Hoffman, baritone and guitar; Charles Yang, violin;

Two meteoric musical careers that captured the ethos of their era, a dual repertoire of songs so iconic as to have assumed the status of folk music: Franz Schubert and the team of Paul McCartney and John Lennon (with contributions from band-mate George Harrison).
