Concerts: Brahms & the Schumanns: Love, Genius, Madness

Back to All Concerts

Late in September 1853, a dashing 20-year old Johannes Brahms knocked on Robert and Clara Schumanns’ door, leading to one of the great stories in music history. Alan Alda will tell this tale of friendship, love, desperation, and madness using the composers’ own letters, while BCMF musicians will perform works by all three composers, each a story of its own.
