Lark Ascending: Clara Schumann
February 18 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm ESTby donation
Discover the extraordinary world and legacy of Clara Schumann with Arpeggione. Schumann expert David Kim joins Arpeggione’s musicians in chamber works by Clara Schumann and improvisations in her own style. We explore Clara’s remarkable influence with works by two of the many musicians who revered her for her musical expertise and guidance, Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms.
Arpeggione’s musicians will be joined by guest fortepianist David Kim. An improvisation for solo piano in the style of Clara Schumann will open the program, followed by works by Clara and Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms.
Arpeggione’s musicians will be performing on instruments original to or copied from Clara Schumann’s time, including flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and a Viennese-style fortepiano by Rod Regier of Freeport, ME. “Among the finest pianists of his generation” (WholeNote), guest artist David Kim has been acclaimed as a musician who “rivals Golden Age pianists… A performer of artistry, integrity, and interest” (Early Music America).
