The Deal

The Program

  • Schumann—Manfred Overture: If this piece feels like a poem in orchestral form, that’s because it is. Based on Lord Byron’s Manfred, Schumann’s masterpiece captures not only the tonal heft of Byron’s words but also the composer’s personal tumult—at the time of its writing he was suffering from auditory hallucinations.
  • Schmidt—Lunar Reflections: The orchestral world premiere of this work includes five movements that the composer calls “moons.” The first moon, “February Snow Moon,” begins the piece with a delicate coldness that slowly thaws until the last moon, “July Thunder Moon,” brings it to an electrifying close.
  • Schumann—Symphony No. 1, Spring: Schumann’s first completed symphony closes with a merry finale that mixes playfully capering strings and triumphant fanfares—a fittingly cheerful tone, since the composer wrote it for his beloved wife Clara.
