Carl Schmidt played Schubert’s 1822 “Wanderer” Fantasy – one of his boldest and most ingenious works: symphonic in outlook, proudly heroic and technically challenging for all but the most accomplished pianists. Tchaikovsky’s mighty fourth symphony is his study into the nature of fate and Brahms Academic Festival is a medley of rowdy student songs and a tonguein – cheek ‘thank you’ for an honorary degree from the University of Breslau.
