February 11 & 12, 2017
In February, we shined a light on the relationship between Schumann and Brahms, and the elegant soprano Hyunah Yu returned to sing Schumann’s transporting song cycle Frauenliebe und -leben.
Also, as part of a new Musical Masterworks venture, Edward Arron delighted us with an in-depth pre-concert talk about the lives and compositions of Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms.
