Firebird Trio: Brahms, Schumann & Schumann

30 March @ 18:00 - 19:00

$40 – $50

Opening with the spirited Scherzo from the F-A-E Sonata, based on a musical cryptogram of the motto ‘Frei aber einsam’ or ‘Free but lonely’, the movement reveals a young composer already at the height of his craft. Moving into Clara Schumann’s Three Romances, composed for the violin virtuoso, Joseph Joachim with whom Clara had a wildly successful musical partnership.

Robert Schumann’s self-styled characters of Florestan and Eusebius are brought to the fore in his Adagio and Allegro for cello and piano – swinging from introversion and tenderness one moment to passionate extroversion the next and finishing with the F major, a work of idyllic generosity and collegiality.
