As is well-known, Robert and Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms shared a close musical as well as personal connection. The young Brahms was lauded by Robert as the future of German Romanticism. Brahms looked up to Robert, and Clara critiqued and premiered many of his compositions.
Fukuda and friends present a program that exemplifies the musical synergies among these three giants of High German Romanticism. The program includes a selection of lieder by R. Schumann, C. Schumann’s "Variations on a Theme by R. Schumann," and a Brahms sonata for piano and cello.
Admission is free and open to the public.
