Being Robert Schumann: Symphony No. 3

30 April 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

 

After relocating from Leipzig to Düsseldorf, and with his physical and mental health failing, Schumann experienced one of his final creative outbursts. In his third symphony, he evokes the pastoral calm, euphoric bliss, and living spirit of the Rhineland. Accompanying and informing the piece is the premiere of a work commissioned in response to Schumann’s music from Metchosin-born composer Cassandra Miller. The program concludes with audience favourite Lorraine Min sharing music from Schumann’s dear personal friend, Johannes Brahms.

Cassandra Miller’s piece is a VS co-commission, with the support of the Hugh Davidson Fund at the Victoria Foundation
