CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Performance Wednesday, April 22, 2015 | 8 PM

Dorothea Röschmann
Mitsuko Uchida

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
The superstar team of soprano Dorothea Röschmann and pianist Mitsuko Uchida perform love songs by Schumann and Berg. Schumann’s great love for Clara Wieck is at the heart of this Liederkreis, songs he described in a letter to her as his “most romantic music ever, with much of you in it.” His marriage to Clara might have inspired his song cycle Frauenliebe und -leben, a celebration of a woman’s devotion to her husband. Schumann’s piano mastery is evident throughout, as the instrument is given a more prominent role than ever before heard in the song literature. Berg offers a fevered view of love in his impassioned Seven Early Songs.
