On Sunday September 25, at 5 PM, pianist Aymeric Dupré la Tour with Alison Holt on viola, perform a program of Romantic music by Robert Schumann and Johannas Brahms: Fairy Tale Tableaux, Childhood Scenes, and an Alpine Idyll.|
The first part of the concert will be dedicated to Robert Schumann (1810-56). Pianist Aymeric Dupré la Tour will interweave his performance of the thirteen childhood scenes Kinderszenen op. 15 (1838) with his duo with Alison Holt, performing Märchenbilder op. 113 (1851), a suite of four movements evoking fairy tale tableaux from Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, and Sleeping Beauty. After a brief pause, the duo will perform the Sonata in F minor for viola and piano op. 120 no. 1 (1894) by Johannes Brahms (1833-97). Brahms completed this mature composition in idyllic Bad Ischl, Austria in July 1894.

Admission $20, $15 NLMS members and students.
Remaining tickets will be available at the door prior to the concert.
