Comfy Concerts: A Carnival Tale
Robert Schumann composed this "Carnival Tale" (Faschingsschwank Aus Wien, Op. 26) while attempting to establish himself in Vienna, where he felt isolated and lonely despite the entertaining and beautiful city bustling around him. He longed for his fiancée back in Germany, and was frustrated that things weren't going as planned with his career.

In the midst of his loneliness and frustration, he wrote us a piece both exuberantly joyful and at times unapologetically melancholy. Back in March, I chose this piece to accompany me during pandemic life, and it has allowed me both to express my sadness at the world's current situation, and to rise above it.

Grace Byers' uplifting book, I am Enough, opens our eyes to our common humanity and Schumann's music serves as a wonderful backdrop for her beautiful language of inclusion and understanding.

The music portion of the program will be pre-recorded, in order to provide the best sound quality, and the reading will happen in real time to allow interaction with audience members of all ages.
