The show presents the masterpieces of classics in performance of distinguished musicians, as well as provides comprehensive information about the lives and works of composers and performers, their role and influence on further development of classical music.
The first part of this issue is dedicated to the firstborn of classical romance, Mozart's song "Violet," and the second part presents Schubert's song "Gretchen at the Spinning Wheel." Both songs are based on Goethe's lyrics. If "Violet" is a dramatic scene, "Gretchen" is a tragic one. Both songs are innovative and dominated by purely musical laws and intermediate development, which is clearly expressed in the accompaniment. Both songs predetermined the further development of this genre.
