Rethinking Schubert @ Church of the Heavenly Rest
Feb 18 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

February 18 – New York Classical Players: Rethinking Schubert, 3pm.

Franz Schubert’s enduring legacy as one of the most prolific and creative composers is the source of inspiration for New York Classical Player’s original new program, “Rethinking Schubert.”  Three works transform, magnify, and illuminate the artistry of Schubert through works for string orchestra. Rondo Brillant, originally scored for violin and piano and Schubert’s Death and the Maiden(String Quartet No. 14 in D minor), magnificently arranged by Gustav Mahler, are performed alongside the United State premiere of Dobrinka Tabakova’s 2013 Fantasy Homage to Schubert. Click here for free tickets, click here for more information.

Need a Prayer

Open my lips, O Lord,
and my mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.

Cast me not away from your presence
and take not your holy Spirit from me.

Give me the joy of your saving help again
and sustain me with your bountiful Spirit.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
