Weber, Schubert and Spohr


  • Nash Ensemble
  • Stéphanie d'Oustrac mezzo-soprano
  • Simon Crawford-Phillips piano

The Nash Ensemble’s series Around Schubert opens with a programme including two of Schubert’s chamber music masterpieces, the single string quartet movement in C minor and the buoyant ‘Trout’ Quintet with double bass. The outstanding French mezzo Stéphanie d’Oustrac sings some of Weber’s arrangements of Scottish folksongs, a Spohr ‘romance’ which was a favourite in the Victorian era, and a group of Schubert songs which are favourites for all time.

BBC Radio 3 will broadcast this concert on Monday 21 October at 7.30pm and it will be available on BBC Sounds for 30 days
