Schubert Sound Installation at the Mead

Schubert Sound Installation
August 26–September 28, 2014

In conjunction with the Amherst Schubert Project, the Mead presents a “Schubert Sound Installation” in the wood-paneled Rotherwas Room.

Five speakers, positioned on stands in a large oval configuration, each play one of the five parts of Schubert's Cello Quintet (1828), previously recorded by the Brentano Quartet and Michael Kannen, director of chamber music at the Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University. As listeners move from one speaker to the next, the building blocks of Schubert’s composition can be heard individually, in various combinations or all together.
