Symphony Summer Season
Updated: Jul 29, 2022
Extraordinary, admission-free performances, world-class musicians—and truly something for everyone: July 24-August 18, 2022 https://www.svmusicfestival.org/summer-season/
It’s a rare treat to hear two world-class pianists at the same time, so mark your calendars for this performance by George Li and Peter Henderson, the Festival’s Principal Keyboard. They’ll play Schubert’s Fantasy in F Minor, a haunting piece, in which according to one critic, “we hear Schubert’s soul pouring itself out like a nightingale in the flowering shrubs.” Following, Festival musicians join Li for Schumann’s Piano Quintet, a piece widely regarded as one of the composer’s finest compositions. It was the first piano quintet ever written and was premiered featuring the composer’s spouse, pianist Clara Schumann (a gifted musician in her own right!).
