A Schumann Journey
Michael Tilson Thomas, conductor
Joshua Hopkins, baritone
Join MTT and the Fellows on an unforgettable three-part journey through the emotional works of Robert Schumann. As an ardent romantic, Schumann infused his writings with sensitivity and color like none other. From early masterworks for piano to his famed lieder, dramatic and tender chamber works to his poetic Fourth Symphony, delve into Schumann’s sweeping passion and genius where good audibly battles evil, nature soars and love is eternal. Canadian baritone Joshua Hopkins lends his rich, golden tone to Schumann’s celebrated song cycle Dichterliebe in this remarkable tribute to one of classical music’s finest.
Journey Concerts are flowing explorations of a single composer or type of music. Making use of the New World Center’s main stage and multiple smaller stages, these continuously moving performances transition from one stage to the next, enveloping audiences in the music itself, without interruption. Journey Concerts are typically three hours in length.
