FEATURING

Schumann’s Scenes from Childhood is a nostalgic musical meditation on the dreams, desires, and adventures of childhood. The popular collection of short character pieces evokes children’s games, reveries about far-off places, and cozy evenings spent by the fireplace.

Ravel’s exquisite Mother Goose Suite summons the magical, mysterious worlds of classic fairy tales including Beauty and the Beast, Tom Thumb, and Laideronnette, The Empress of the Pagodas.

The celebration will culminate with Brahms’s stirring Trio in E-flat for violin, horn, and piano, dedicated to memory of his mother, Christiane.
