Few other pieces showcase Schumann’s creative expression and unrestricted imagination than his fantasy works, written both early and late in his career. Making his New York recital debut, pianist Severin von Eckardstein captures the subtle variety of this dreamy music in two distinct programs that showcase his superb technique and emotional depth. He opens his residency exploring the connection between Schumann and Russian composer Nikolai Medtner through their exploration of fantastical elements, and then turns to darker myths in a program that pairs the composer’s works with those of Wagner and Liszt.
Performance 1 (November 13): Program to include works by Schumann and Medtner
Performance 2 (November 14): Program to include works by Schumann, Wagner, Liszt, and Martin Herchenröder
