Between genius and madness

Registration is mandatory. Please follow this link to register. (The reservation page will be online 2 weeks prior to the event)

This concert will focus on Schumann’s major works for piano and how they display general tendencies in Romantic music and how music becomes a medium for great emotions to the brink of madness.

In particular Schumann’s style will be analysed and shortly compared to music of other contemporary composers order to distinguish his unique sense of music.

Especially there will be a closer look on his last Work the Geistervariationen that he wrote in his very last days before he was sent to the lunatic asylum and in which he even attempted suicide.
