The Heart of the Romantic: The Schumanns and Brahms

Renowned actor Jane Lapotaire joins forces with the acclaimed Kramer/ Durcan duo (Miriam Kramer violin and Nicholas Durcan piano), violinist Lorenz Hasler of I Salonisti, violist Alison Ruscoe and cellist Mayda Narvey to celebrate the legendary association of Robert and Clara Schumann with Johannes Brahms through words and music.

Brahms' passionate Piano Quintet in F Minor is coupled with Schumann's haunting chamber work for the same combination. Letters of Clara and Robert from their ardent but tragic marriage and letters between Clara and her almost-lover and lifelong friend, Brahms, as well as the writing of 19th century composer and chronicler of music, ETA Hoffmann, bring the world of this astonishing trio to life.
