About the Event
Immerse yourself in the stunning architecture of Milan's breathtaking Auditorium Fondazione Cariplo for the ultimate concert set to awake your understanding of classical music.
The human affairs of Johannes Brahms and Robert Schumann are closely linked by a thin red thread. Without Schumann, the other and the creation of his myth probably would not have existed, as happened with his Third symphony. Dated 1883, Brahms's Third marks his final consecration: that year Richard Wagner had died and he was called by Hans von Bulow 'the most eminent, the greatest of composers.'
The other Third, Schumann's, is in truth the last symphonic work of the Romantic master and dates from 1850, upon his move with his family to Düsseldorf (on the banks of the Rhine River), where he had been called to the coveted post of concertmaster: a brief period of serenity opened. Of this placated inner climate bears a reflection the Third Symphony, composed precisely at the close of that year and ideally dedicated, so much so as to be known as the Rhine, to the happy lightheartedness of life on the banks of the river sung by Heine.
