The title refers to home music-making among Franz Schubert’s wide circle of friends, when in each others’ homes they sang his songs and played his piano pieces and chamber music. These were evenings among semi-Bohemians, rich with music and conversations. This week we explore the chamber-music compositions of Schubert. Some of these works are very familiar like the Trout Quintet, and others like some of his string quartets are less know but equally as wonderful.
