Gregg's Classical Thoughts

What's So Great About Franz Schubert? Gregg Whiteside Knows...

Gregg describes his awe-filled experience visiting the house where Schubert was born in Vienna.

It's so easy to find oneself attracted to the music of Franz Schubert. His unmatched gift for lyricism makes him so approachable, so comprehensible; and we feel ourselves being pulled into his musical world – in my case, at a very early age.  But now, with the wisdom of my years, my appreciation for Schubert has deepened.  For lying within this musical world of color and melodic beauty is a powerful undertow of mystery, of light and dark, of profundity beyond the years of a young genius who lived only until the age of 31. January 31st, 2013 marks the 215th anniversary of Schubert's birth - so I thought it was an opportune time to share my thoughts on one of my all-time favorite composers.

Remembering Three Composers Who All Died At Auschwitz On This Date in 1944

Composer Viktor Ullmann perished on October 17, 1944

Three of the 20th century's greatest musicians all died on October 17, 1944 - and all at the hands of the Nazis.  Czech composers Viktor Ullmann, Pavel Haas, and Hans Krasa all perished at Auschwitz (see videos of their music below); they were all taken there just three days after their final concert together on October 14, 1944 at the Theresienstadt concentration camp.
