The year 1840 was a miraculous one for Schumann, devoting himself almost exclusively to song composition. Long melodic lines and a prominent role for the piano makes his songs among the most remarkable of the time. This concert features music from that year, including selections from the nature-inspired Liederkreis, a cycle Schumann described in a letter to Clara Wieck as his “most romantic music ever,” and the impassioned Frauenliebe und -leben. There’s also music from later in his career, including the songs of the harper from Goethe’s novel Wilhelm Meister, dramatic settings where the vocal line has a striking declamatory power. —Carnegie Hall
