Schumann’s lyrical fairy stories and fantasy pieces set the tone for this program of colorful tales and wild flights of fancy. They’re joined by Jörg Widmann’s Es war einmal (Once Upon a Time), an invigorating take on the fairy tale that cleverly flirts with quotations from Schumann while subversively (in the best way) turning convention on its ear. While not a fairy tale, Mozart’s gorgeous trio has a story too—the legend is that it was composed during a game of skittles.
