A mini-festival in honour of Robert Schumann!

Extreme feelings were not foreign to Schumann. He even gave the different aspects of his character their own names! Two of his most famous alter egos are the extroverted, impulsive Florestan and the inward, thoughtful Eusebius. Schumann's compositions reflect his deeply romantic nature and thus give us - as if we were eavesdropping - a glimpse into his innermost private world.

Schumann was a poet pur sang who experienced feelings of ecstatic joy and tenderness, but also deep sadness and depression. In his innerworld he was tormented by evil spirits, but also visited by angels.

We can fill many more concerts with beautiful compositions by Schumann. The choice was made for this diverse selection of repertoire with a line-up of wonderful musicians. Come listen and find out why!
