e132 @ home: Schumann's Carnaval – for Piano Quartet!

Fri, March 26, 2021 7:30 PM, EDT

Reserve a spot for entire 3-part series $3 to reserve, $10+ at each event

In ensemble132’s very first Groupmuse, we’ll be exploring the personal and artistic ties between one of music history's most beloved trio of friends: Clara Schumann, Robert Schumann, and Johannes Brahms. At its center is Sam Hong’s original transcription of Robert Schumann’s Carnaval, Op. 9, for piano quartet. Originally a monumental work for solo piano, each short movement captures a musical personality from an array of characters at a masked ball--from Paganini and Chopin to figures from the commedia dell'arte.

You’ll also hear works by Clara Schumann–Robert’s wife and lifelong champion–and Johannes Brahms, one of the couple’s dearest friends. Be prepared for a night of Romantic masterworks!
