Sehnsucht Project

Teachers from Hampstead Music School, Cettina & Catherine, gave a beautiful rendition of Beethoven Sonata, Songs from Brahms and Schumann Adagio & Allegro as part of their "Sehnsucht" project last Friday at St.James's Church in Paddington.

Sehnsucht translates to longing in English and the pieces in this project vary stylistically, but they share the typical themes of high German Romanticism: intense love, death and the sorrow of longing.
