Message from Alexander Sung:
Robert Schumann (1810-1856)
Opus 21, 8 Novelletten (Short Stories)
"Imagine how these "Eight Short Stories" mirror the timeless fairy tale story of Beauty and the Beast. Robert Schumann, the "Father of Romance", composed a romantic and touching eight short love "stories" about the sweet but somewhat dramatic relationship between him and his beloved wife, Clara.
I will lead us through this story where the music from a great romantic composer meets the Beauty and the Beast. Join me on this journey of love and dreams. See you at my concert..."
