Event Details

Resilience. Determination. Exultation. Schumann’s Second Symphony reminds us how humans, flaws and all, can overcome challenges with guts and grace. The pain and humiliation of a hand injury that ended his piano career led Schumann onto a symphonic path blazed by Beethoven, as heard in the fiery “Zwickauer” Symphony. The willful streak that carried Beethoven through so much personal hardship was already well developed in the First Piano Concerto, his proud and unbending bid to fill the mighty large shoes of Mozart.
