„About Schubert –Compared to me you are all worms“

Concert for Cello, Piano & Reading
An actor is reading letters, memories from – about – to Schubert

At the encounter with Beethoven Schubert loses his voice, because of an unfriendly word by his music and instrument dealer he lets himself get scared off with his new compositions in humiliation.

But then: In a wine-elated mood he shouts his answer in the face of the musicians of the Vienna Hofopera-Orchestra who ask him for a composition: „No! I won’t write anything for you!“

You call yourself artists? Musicians you are! I am an artist, me! I am Schubert… You crawling and knawing worms which my foot should tread down…!“

This is the same Schubert? And then the insecure song-virtuoso is said to have composed everything at his desk because he never could afford a piano? And all that without any corrections and reworking like Beethoven and Brahms did? Against all worn out clichés, Schubert’s story is surprisingly contradictory and absolutely thrilling.
