St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble: Brahms and the Schumanns
Sunday, June 17, 2018
Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor
In this program, two works by Johannes Brahms and two by the Schumanns, Clara and Robert, evoke the couple's complex relationships with Brahms as friends and confidants. Robert Schumann declared Brahms the heir of Beethoven; Brahms and Clara Schumann explored their love. The performance features Brahms’s contribution to a collaborative work written for the violinist Joseph Joachim, the Scherzo from the Sonatensatz in C Minor; Robert Schumann’s revered Piano Trio No. 1; Clara Schumann’s inventive Romances for Violin; and Brahms’s Horn Trio, Op. 40, dating from the year of his first encounter with the Schumanns.
Stop by before the 2 pm concert for a discussion exploring the composers' intricate, psychologically charged relationship. Led by Deborah L. Cabaniss, M.D. and professor of clinical psychiatry, Columbia University, and Thomas Cabaniss, composer and faculty member, The Juilliard School.
Tickets are $40 ($32 for Members) and are available at oslmusic.org.
