Robert Schumann Celebration at Webster University
To celebrate Romantic-era composer Robert Schumann's 200th birthday anniversary, Webster faculty members will perform representative piano and vocal works.
Donna Vince plays the first movement of Schumann's Fantasy in C Major, Op. 17. Noel Prince sings Schumann's classic art song Widmung, a powerful love song, after which pianist Daniel Schene plays Franz Liszt's virtuoso transcription of Widmung.
The hour-long performance is one of two this year celebrating major composer anniversaries. Frederic Chopin's 200th birthday will be celebrated in recital on Sunday, April 18.
