Schumann & Mendelssohn

Enlightenment Festival: Celebrated Icons and Hidden Figures

While you may know the major players of the Classical and Romantic eras, this year’s Enlightenment Festival will surprise you with other masters who have been lost to the winds of time.

Week 1: Romantic - Schumann & Mendelssohn

James K. Bass, conductor
Andrew H. Weaver, consulting scholar

Clara and Robert. Fanny and Felix. Experience expressive songs from brilliant, yet underrecognized composers —Clara Schumann, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, and Samuel Coleridge-Taylor—and from artists who have traditionally defined the era—Robert Schumann, Felix Mendelssohn, and Johannes Brahms. Immerse yourself in hummable melodies and passionate lyrics as we celebrate the beauty and diversity of Romantic choral music.
