Frauenkirche Concert Homage to Robert Schumann
Runtime: 1 hr 17 minBetween 1844 and 1859 Robert Schumann lived in Dresden where he composed a third of his complete work. For the 200th anniversary of the romanticist in 2010 Daniel Harding conducts a programme consisting of three of Schumann’s compositions from the Dresden era (overture to “Genoveva”, “Requiem für Mignon“ and “Nachtlied”). Moreover, the “Rheinische Sinfonie”, composed by Schumann after leaving Dresden and widely influenced by his impressions of the Cologne Cathedral, blends in perfectly with the sacral architecture of the Frauenkirche.
