Schumann was the Romantic era's gentle revolutionary ... he preferred the profound intimacy of a poet's imagination to an orator's grand gestures.

Why See Los Angeles Philharmonic - Schumann Focus Symphony 3?

Concert No. 3 Of The LA Philharmonic's Schumann Focus Series

Possessing one of the greatest imaginations of the romantic era, Schumann brought a new sense of lyricism to the German institutions of the symphony, sonata and concerto. A lifelong fan of the composer's dreamlike reveries, resident LA Philharmonic music director Gustavo Dudamel presents the 2017/18 Schumann Focus series. Over the course of five special concerts, Dudamel will lead the ensemble through all four of Schumann's soaring symphonies, his piano and cello concertos, and his thrilling oratorio Das Paradies und die Peri.

In the third concert of the series, award-winning Argentine cellist Sol Gabetta lends her bow to Schumann's Cello Concerto, his only work for the instrument that was never played in his lifetime. An enigmatic work that stands out for its unusual structure and soul-stirring emotional scope, the concerto was finished in 1850, the same year the composer finished his Third Symphony. A dazzling aural display of German counterpoint, the five-movement piece is often referred to as Schumann's Rhenish Symphony, as it was written during his tenure as conductor at Dusseldorf near the Rhine river.
