Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra: Wagner, Barber, Schumann

Sunday, February 26, 2023

2–4 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

The Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra presents a dynamic program of three works celebrating aspects of Romanticism. Richard Wagner’s Prelude to Act I of “Lohengrin” describes the Holy Grail’s descent to Earth with a shimmering string opening and slow but intense build to a grand climax. Samuel Barber’s Souvenirs, a nostalgic ode, reflects on the forgotten spirit and magnificence of pre-WWI hotels with music for six dances fashionable in 1914 New York City. Finally, Robert Schumann’s dark and dramatic Fourth Symphony maintains a powerful momentum, with twists and turns ranging from brooding melancholy to heroic passion.

Program:  

  • Richard Wagner, Prelude to Act I of “Lohengrin”
  • Samuel Barber, Souvenirs, op. 28
  • Robert Schumann, Symphony no. 4 in D Minor, op. 120

Advance tickets are available through the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra at $15 for seniors and Museum Members and $20 for non-Members; same-day tickets are $25 at the door. Free for youths 16 and under.
