BOOK CLUB WITH THE MAESTRO

Hosted by Daniel Kleinknecht
Featuring Schumann: The Faces and the Masks by Judith Chernaik

From the Maestro: “This book was published in 2018 and is new to me but is the perfect read before our March concert. Schumann’s music was a staple in my diet when I was a pianist in high school and as an undergraduate. Now, to look back on his music and his philosophies as we are presenting Schumann song cycles, I have more appreciation for what he stood for as a pianist, composer, and editor of a music magazine, the Neue Zeitschrift für Musik. Schumann was entrenched in cerebral battles with the Wagnerites about the direction of music in the 19th century. His wife, the brilliant pianist Clara, remained not only his muse, but one of the most impassioned proponents of his compositions. His life was vivid and his death harrowing.”
