Dinis Sousa, conductor | Isata Kanneh-Mason, piano
ROBERT SCHUMANN | Symphony in G Minor ‘Zwickau’, CLARA SCHUMANN | Piano Concerto, BEETHOVEN | Symphony No. 3 ‘Eroica’
Very different from anything that had gone before, Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’ (meaning ’heroic’) challenged its audience and changed musical history – a wild journey of emotional extremes. Clara Schumann’s Piano Concerto is a similarly dazzling artistic statement, while her husband, Robert’s Symphony provides an energetic opening.
