PIANOFORTE DUETS—SCHUBERT
Played by ETHEL BARTLETT and RAE ROBERTSON
Lebensstürme ('Life's Tempests')
SCHUBERT calls this piece' a characteristic
Allegro,' and with that, and its name, in mind, little more explanation can be needed. Both players set forth the rather stern theme with which it begins, but that mood gives way very soon to a more tender one. Like all Schubert's music, this is rich in melodies, some of which suggest that life's tempests are not all of a very violent order. The mood of the music is at times quite gentle, and at other times almost playful, though it has, of course, its stormy movements.
