  • 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 guest artist Benjamin Grosvenor, piano, on February 8 & 9 and Intimate Songs & Grand Choruses on February 13.

    Andrés Orozco-Estrada, conductor
