Why See Los Angeles Philharmonic - Schumann Focus Symphony 1?

Concert One of the Schumann Focus Series

Helmed by fearless leader Gustavo Dudamel, the Los Angeles Philharmonic takes a deep dive into the works of Schumann, arguably the greatest composer of the romantic era, in the 2017/18 season Schumann Focus Series. Over two weekends, all four of his symphonies and selected cello and piano concertos, the ensemble will explore his rich legacy, revelling in his ability to translate poetic ideas into dreamlike musical soundscapes.

The in-depth exploration of kicks off with a thrilling program comprised of his Piano Concerto in A minor featuring world renowned pianist and foremost Schumann interpreter Mitsuko Uchida, as well as his Symphony No. 1 in B-flat major. Also known as the Spring Symphony, the vibrant piece was inspired by the poetry of German writer Adolf Bottger and his imagery of springtime. Written in a mere four days, its thrilling fanfares, orchestral themes and sprightly dance-forms conjure a riot of color and a sense joie de vivre.
