Keys to Vienna explores keyboard music by three of 19th century Vienna’s favourite composers: Schubert, Beethoven and Brahms. As the only member of the trio who was born in Vienna, the program fittingly starts with the work of Schubert; one of his many gems for four hands.

Beethoven’s “Waldstein” Sonata needs little introduction, sitting squarely in his so-called heroic period, the work reveals its eternal modernity through a sheen of minimalist textures.

Today’s performers round out the program with Brahms’ contribution to the waltz genre in four hands through his Opus 39 – a beautiful, integrated work that encourages the performers to dance with each other through the keyboard.

Free event.

Location: Nickson Room, UQ School of Music.
