Nathalie Stutzmann Conductor
Schumann Symphony No. 4
Shrouded in mystery, Mozart’s Requiem has sparked stories since the composer’s tragic, troubled death at age 35. Writing in a creative frenzy, pouring out his genius in an attempt to improve his fortunes while fearing his impending death, he put everything he had into this astonishing masterpiece. Blazing with theatricality and weighted with sorrow, it remains beloved by audiences more than two centuries after its first performance. This program also includes Robert Schumann’s brooding and passionate Fourth Symphony.
