    Chamber Music Society
  • Schumann and Wolf

    This concert's pairing of music by the two great Romantic composers, Robert Schumann and Hugo Wolf, is a fascinating and delightful musical experience in more ways than one. First, works by Schumann bookend the program with two of his most popular chamber works, each containing some of the most lyrical, memorable melodies you will hear anywhere.

    In the middle, we hand the vocal responsibilities over to the estimable baritone Thomas Hampson, as he explores, with the Jupiter String Quartet, arrangements of extraordinary songs by the late German romantic composer Hugo Wolf. Separated from Schumann by a couple of generations, Wolf nevertheless carried the same romantic torch and, like Schumann, he suffered from turbulent mental states that easily emerge in his inventive and passionate music.

  • 11:00 PM
