Concertzender Live

Compiled by our Classical Music desk.

We are all familiar with the great masterpieces of Mozart and Haydn. But do you also know their songs?

Perhaps you did not know that they wrote any songs at all. The song was not considered a major art form until Schubert. Before that, it was held in low esteem: songs were music for amateurs, only meant to be played indoors.

Yet these two masters of the classical style have also written songs. To be performed in the market place, between friends, or just for fun. Stripped-down cantatas, arias for the piano, and folk songs. And talent cannot be concealed. Despite the modest status of the song, they often knew how to embellish it or give it an interesting twist. Mozart, in particular, was ahead of Schubert in this respect. In order to emphasise this, we will also hear a few songs by the grand master at the end of the programme.
