INTERMISSION

Schumann - Symphony No. 1 ("Spring")

Saturday, March 5, 2016

8:00 pm Verizon Hall

Yannick and Hélène Grimaud, two great musical friends, come together to bring us an enduring monument of classical music: Brahms's immortal Second Piano Concerto. Experience for yourself what the Los Angeles Times calls Grimaud's "elegant, cinematic presence ... She plays with tonal clarity and rhythmic elan." In the second half of the concert, we hear Brahms's friend Schumann. With the winter weather hopefully drawing to a close, Schumann's "Spring" Symphony is a triumph in its own right, exemplifying his credo: "To send light into the darkness of men's hearts--such is the duty of the artist."
