Pianist and conductor Vladimir Feltsman is one of the most versatile and constantly interesting musicians of our time. His vast repertoire encompasses music from the Baroque to 20th century composers. A regular guest soloist with leading symphony orchestras in the United States and abroad, he appears in the most prestigious concert series and music festivals all over the world. A sense of nostalgia is palpable in the works of Franz Schubert. The great exponent of the search for lost time, marcel Proust, sought to immortalize the past by remembering it. Schubert longed for what could have been, but never was. He dreamed of the life he should have has, but never did. Unlike the great Viennese composers, Schubert never held a real career in a musical establishment, and he only performed in private houses. He is often described as the last classical and first romantic composer. "As for me, I shall never turn my inmost feelings to personal or political account: what I feel in my heart I give to the world, and there is an end of it" (Franz Schubert).
