Byron Schenkman & Friends: Schumann Fairy Tales & Fantasies

Robert Schumann had a rare gift for transferring the adventures he often read and dreamt about into vivid musical poetry. Our program includes his “Fairy Tales” for clarinet, viola, and piano; “Fantasy Pieces” for clarinet and piano; and “Pictures from the East” for piano, four hands. Schumann’s influence on the next generation of composers is represented by the Romance for clarinet and piano by Marie Elisabeth von Saxe-Meiningen, and two pieces for viola, clarinet, and piano by Max Bruch - his “Romanian Melody” and “Song of the Night.
