SCO: Schumann - Symphony No 3

7:30pm, Thursday 06 April 2017

Schumann Symphony No 3

The Quilter Cheviot Krivine Series

 

Inspired in part by a visit to the recently completed cathedral in Cologne, Schumann’s ‘Rhenish’ combines the energy of Beethoven (the ‘Eroica’ and ‘Pastoral’ Symphonies are clearly among its influences) with Schumann’s own highly lyrical gift. By contrast, Mozart is a constant presence in Schubert’s Fifth Symphony. In 1816 (the year of the Symphony’s composition) Schubert confided to his diary, “O Mozart, immortal Mozart, how many, oh how endlessly many such comforting perceptions of a brighter and better life hast thou brought to our souls!”
