Clara Rottsolk, Ed Matthew, and Dongsok Shin — all well-known performers in the HIP field — come together to perform songs and instrumental music of the Classical period by Franz Schubert and Bernhard Crusell. The program includes many greatest hits of Schubert that are still rarely heard, even in New York City, on instruments the composer would have recognized!
