Researcher, writer and presenter Katy Hamilton gives us an introduction to the complex musical and personal triangle of Robert and Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms. Taking our name, New Paths, from Robert’s response to Brahms’ music (‘Neue Bahnen’), we are focussing on the music of these three musicians throughout the festival – so come and find out about them!
Katy has made several appearances on BBC Radio 3, as a Brahms specialist and as part of the CD Review team, and has provided concert introductions and programme notes for the National Gallery, the Victoria & Albert Museum, Royal College of Music, and the Wigmore Hall.
Join us after this event for our Opening Concert, exploring music of these very composers.
