Schumann's Circle of Friends


This KSO Masterworks program takes the audience to the friendship of German composers Robert Schumann, Clara Schumann, Johannes Brahms, Felix Mendelssohn, and Fanny Mendelssohn. The Mendelssohn family artistry is represented by Felix Mendelssohn’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream: Overture” and his sister Fanny’s work, Song Without Words. The night also features Clara Schumann’s “Piano Concerto” performed by pianist Gabriela Martinez. Eric Jacobsen, conductor and co-founder of the highly successful orchestra, The Knights, and winner of the prestigious United States Arts Fellowship in 2012 is the conductor for the night’s pieces. This engaging experience will leave the audience deeply infatuated with the German romantic composers that shaped the romantic era of symphonic music.
