Sir John Eliot Gardiner leads a journey through the Romanticism of Weber, Mendelssohn and Schumann.
The Overture to Weber’s grand opera Euryanthe, which has taken on a life of its own in the concert hall, is a window onto some of the most exciting moments of the whole work. Isabelle Faust and Kristian Bezuidenhout then present Mendelssohn’s Concerto for Violin and Piano, which elegantly balances a measure of Classical restraint against rich and Romantic displays of feeling.
We close with Schumann’s Third Symphony. One of the composer’s most impressive, it paints a euphoric picture of the German Rhineland in broad Beethovenian style, closing with an exhilarating finale.
See the final instalment of Sir John Eliot Gardiner's Schumann cycle on Sunday 10 February.
