Being Robert Schumann: Symphony No. 3

April 30 @ 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. The program also includes the inspiring Piano Concerto No. 1 by Schumann’s dear personal friend, Johannes Brahms, performed by audience favourite Lorraine Min. Sharing the bill is Parallel Universes, by the Swedish composer Britta Byström. Commissioned for a BBC Proms event at Royal Albert Hall in 2021, this performance by the Victoria Symphony is a North American debut.

* The previously announced debut of music by Cassandra Miller has been delayed due to a medical setback (now successfully resolved). The Victoria Symphony will introduce the Metchosin-born composer’s VS/VSO co-commission in a performance on November 5, 2023. The work is commissioned through the Hugh Davidson Fund at the Victoria Foundation, and with additional support from Royal Northern Sinfonia.
