Trneček Schubert-Fantasie Op. 7
Harpist, pianist and conductor Hans Trneček tirelessly promoted a Czech national style of music, especially in the realm of opera, and championed Smetana’s works. Like Holý, he studied at the Prague Conservatory. His early Schubert-Fantasie brings back Schubert’s most beloved themes of his era. You will recognize whiffs of Der Lindenbaum, Lob der Tränen, Ständchen and Wohin? ingeniously woven into a sweeping emotive tapestry. Schubert’s spirit must be “smiling through the tears”.
