Robert Schumann – The Light and Shade
The music of Robert Schumann spans an extraordinary wide range of emotion and expression – as this varied programme, curated by David Podd, amply demonstrates.
Schumann’s was a stormy and ultimately tragic life, exquisitely represented here in his glorious songs for soprano and baritone, music for piano, and his single work for clarinet and piano.
In an informal setting the music will be interspersed with readings, including several of the heartfelt letters between Schumann and his wife Clara, which provide a moving backdrop to the life of this remarkable composer.
