  • overview

    Robert Schumann’s music speaks to us in a timeless, universal language. His romance with virtuoso pianist Clara Wieck is a love story for the ages, while his ongoing battle with depression, and eventual descent into insanity, makes his noble, life-affirming creations all the more remarkable. Join us for a deep dive into the trials and the triumphs, the love and the madness, the man and the music.

    Catch all of the Schumann Festival performances! Enjoy Intimate Songs & Grand Choruses on February 13 and guest artist Alisa Weilerstein, cello, on February 15 & 16.

    Andrés Orozco-Estrada, conductor
