As the grand finale of the Winterfest, the January 13 concert will showcase acclaimed artists Sarah Shafer (soprano), Roman Rabinovich (piano) and Alexander Fiterstein (clarinet) as they perform a diverse selection of works by famed composers. Notably, attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy Schubert’s “Shepherd on the Rock” amidst the setting of Sedona’s breathtaking Red Rocks. As his second to last of more than 600 lieder, Schubert composed “Shepherd on the Rock” just one month before his death in 1828. At approximately 12 minutes in length, the piece is longer than most of his other songs and traces an emotional voyage from romantic longing to profound loneliness and, finally, to hopeful anticipation.
