“Once upon a time…” Like many other composers of the Romantic era, Robert Schumann found inspiration in the power of fantasy. This program includes his depictions of classic fairy tales in Märchenbilder, the Fantasy Pieces Op. 73, and Märchenerzählungen, as well as a contemporary take on the subject by Jörg Widmann. The clarinetist and composer is joined by Tabea Zimmermann and Dénes Várjon. Rounding out the program is Mozart’s “Kegelstatt” Trio.
