The Ear has received the following announcement to post from co-founders, co-directors and performers Bill Lutes and Martha Fischer, and from other performers on today’s Schubertiade concert at the UW-Madison:

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to our sixth annual Schubertiade in Mills Hall this afternoon – Sunday, Jan 27 — at 3 p.m.

It has been such a joy for all of us to prepare this music — all from the last year of Schubert’s life — to share with you, and to once again celebrate the genius of Schubert in your company.

For more information about today’s Schubertiade, including the pre-concert lecture, all performers and the complete program, go to:

Because of tomorrow’s forecast for very low temperatures, we are happy to share the news that the concert will be LIVE-STREAMED on the Internet. If you are unable to get to the concert in person, we hope you will join us online.

While it is always wonderful to have you with us in the hall to share the special feeling of community and love of this great music  — not to mention hearing your voice joining us in our traditional audience sing-along of “An die Musik”! (see the YouTube video at the bottom) — we understand if the frigid weather makes going out an unadvisable option. So we would still like to know that you have the opportunity to tune in and be with us via the wonder of technology.

Use this link and you will be able to watch the live stream of the concert:

Best wishes — and stay warm!


  1. Exquisite program and performances. I especially liked the Perlman Trio’s work (about 35 minutes into the program) and the playing of the pianist in it.

    But well done, everyone!

  3. What a good and kind thing to do! One of Bill’s students is at Vanderbilt majoring in music, and our granddaughter is at Ithaca College majoring in music, and this allows them to hear the performance too! I’ve texted them the URL. Thanks!

  4. This is a nice gesture by the UW School of Music. Thanks!

    My feeling is that all such performances should be live-streamed so that a much larger audience can be reached. This probably costs some money but it will also bring in money. It should be done not only because of storms or cold weather.

    I would also like to suggest that UW build a video archive of performances which is also good for the performers, the university and music lovers.
