There - that's got your attention, hasn't it?!
Zum Roten Igel
– The Red Hedgehog – was an early nineteenth century Viennese tavern where Schubert, in between composing some of the most exquisite music ever written, downed the odd pint whilst listening to the traditional music that influenced his compositions. ZRI today is the name of an outstanding group of virtuoso musicians who not only reproduce some of the that music, but reinterpret Schubert’s own compositions on the instruments he would have listened to.
And they are in St Luke’s on Saturday 2 March for what promises to be an astonishing musical treat. Check them out on YouTube, and then come and hear the real thing!
