Indulge in an evening of pure romanticism featuring the works of four esteemed composers: Schumann, Brahms, Mahler, and Viktor Ullman. Each composer was inspired by the art of poetry, the beauty of the human voice, and one another. Experience the stirring melodies of Brahms' Nänie, a soulful masterpiece set to the enchanting words of Friedrich Schiller, sung by the Nielsen Chorale. Let your heart be moved by 20th century composer Viktor Ullman's piano concerto, a breathtaking piece that bears the indelible mark of Gustav Mahler's genius and the poignant story of its composer's fate. Finally, let the sumptuous notes of Schumann's 4th Symphony wash over you, bringing this unforgettable evening of music to a stirring, romantic conclusion.
