Richardson Chamber Players Brings 19th Century Vienna to Princeton

Nancy Plum

For Sunday afternoon’s concert, the Richardson Chamber Players revived a little known and long since gone musical form of entertainment. In early 19th century Vienna, a common evening activity was to gather friends together to pursue reading, sharing their creative works, or other artistic activities, all to the accompaniment of Franz Schubert. With more than enough repertory to choose from (including over 600 Lieder alone), Schubert was an immensely popular composer whose lyrical melodies became the basis for the Viennese “Schubertiade.” The Richardson Chamber Players re-enacted this unusual essence of Vienna in Richardson Auditorium with a presentation of four Schubert songs and one extended chamber work, all performed by Princeton music faculty members. Successfully giving the audience the feeling of dropping by someone’s private home, Sunday afternoon’s concert was both educational and highly entertaining.
