Schumann Missa Sacra, Op. 147
Brahms Symphony No. 3 in F major, Op. 90
Our season-opening concert recalls an event that indelibly influenced the course of classical music: young Johannes Brahms meeting Robert and Clara Schumann in 1853. Robert Schumann had produced more than a third of his published works during the previous three years, including a Mass in C minor (never performed in complete form until after the composer's death). When Brahms appeared on the Schumanns' doorstep shortly thereafter, Robert Schumann anointed him as "the chosen one." Thirty years later, the protégé had become a master, composing his third symphony while looking out across the same Rhine that both inspired and afflicted his beloved mentor.
