Byron Schenkman & Friends:

Robert Schumann was perhaps the greatest musical poet of all time. We begin with his Kinderszenen for piano, a series of reminiscences of childhood including the famous Träumerei (“Dreams”) and Der Dichter Spricht (“The poet speaks”), and conclude with his masterpiece Dichterliebe (“Poet’s Love”) with tenor Ross Hauck.  According to the San Francisco Classical Voice and Opera News, he brings “an elevated and extra ordinary range of subtle inflections.  The singing was as nuanced as one would expect from a consummate art song recitalist or bel canto specialist.” Also featured will be Seattle Symphony principal violist Susan Gulkis Assadi in the wonderful Märchenbilder (“Fairy tale pictures”) for viola and piano.

Subscriptions are now available for our 2017-2018 season.
