This program focuses on the Romantic era and will feature music from our Crowe Horwath Great Eras The Romantic Concert: Schumann & Brahms. Given the admiration and friendship that Brahms and Schumann shared, it is only natural to feature a program highlighting their music. Haydn Variations features many of the key components that have made Brahms so legendary- a reverence for the past, a seemingly endless gift for melody and invention and even flashes of humor. Schumann wrote his piano concerto for Clara-a renowned virtuoso. Also included is Schumann's second symphony, written towards the end of his now famous ‘year of song.'.
