Opening concert: To the distant beloved

Thursday, 7th April 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

- £12

Beethoven An die ferne Geliebte Op 98
Brahms Sonata No 3 in D minor for violin and piano Op 108
Clara Schumann Er ist gekommen in Sturm und Regen, Liebst du um Schönheit, Warum willst du andre fragen, Loreley, Mein Stern
Robert Schumann Piano Quartet in Eb major Op 47

The opening concert of New Paths 2016 festival in Beverley takes as its starting point the relationship between Robert and Clara Schumann and Brahms: it was Schumann who described the ‘neue Bahnen’ (new paths) of Brahms’ music. Schumann’s ever-popular piano quartet is pitted against Brahms’ tempestuous last violin sonata. Complementing these are some – still undeservingly neglected – gems of Clara Schumann’s song writing.

2016 sees the 200th anniversary of Beethoven’s delightful and wistful An die ferne Geliebte (To the distant beloved), generally recognised as the first ever song cycle, setting up the song cycle as one of the threads in the festival’s programming. All six poems explore love reflected through nature, and the music sees Beethoven at his sunniest.

Join us before this event at Katy Hamilton’s talk about Brahms and the Schumanns.

Artists: Mary Bevan, Nick Pritchard, Jamie Campbell, Alexandra Reid, Simon Tandree, Cara Berridge, Libby Burgess
