This concert was originally scheduled for Tuesday, April 30. Tickets for the original date will be honored on June 18. Concertgoers with additional questions should call CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800. There's melody, melancholy, and perhaps a touch of madness in the two late Schubert sonatas framing a gentle early work. The Sonata in A Minor, likely written when the composer learned of the gravity of his venereal disease, is a dark-hued journey from its disconsolate opening to jittery finale. The Sonata in A Major flows with some of Schubert's most fetching melodies, but the rampaging scales, trills, and clusters that interrupt a tender second-movement theme suggest nightmare or hallucination—perhaps Schubert's cry of misery from the effects of disease.
