Music & Truffles KIDS – Mathieu Gaudet, piano
April 2 @ 1:15 pm – 2:15 pm EDT
THE SHOW: Discovering Franz Schubert – the man and his music. He wrote over 600 songs for voice and piano. Be prepared to sing and dance! Quebec’s Mathieu Gaudet is recording the complete piano music of Schubert for the Analekta label, a project acclaimed by critics and music lovers. The seventh album was just released – he records two per year. Mathieu studied with Julian Martin, Leon Fleisher, Marc Durand, Andre Laplante, John Perry, and Paul Stewart obtaining a performance doctorate in 2007. His love of science propelled him to study medicine and he became dual-career musician. A versatile, accomplished artist, Mathieu has participated as soloist, chamber musician, and conductor during his mainly Canadian tours. His concerts and recordings are regularly broadcast on Radio-Canada and CBC. Revel in excerpts from this all-Schubert program: Twelve German Dances, D. 790, Sonata No. 18 in C minor D. 958, Two Scherzos, D. 593, and Four Impromptus, Op. 90/D. 899.
