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.
