Schumann's Paradise

December 6-7, 2019

Program and Description

SCHUMANN: Paradise and the Peri

What’s interesting about this concert:

• Schumann’s masterwork sets text from Lalla-Rookh, an ultra-Romantic collection of verse by Irish poet Thomas Moore.
• The story follows a peri, a being of both celestial and earthly origins, who can only reenter heaven if she offers up something dearest to God.
• Schumann’s oratorio was an instant success and put his name on the international scene.

 This concert is part of Series 2.
