Robert Schumann

  • Whether you call it Carnival, Carnivale, or Mardi Gras, you’re talking one big party!
  • It doesn't take much to think back to your school days and remember how free you felt when summer was finally here. Classical music celebrates children's playtime.
  • A lullaby is gentle music, sometimes with lyrics, to help a baby – or anyone – fall asleep.
  • On WCRB In Concert with the Celebrity Series of Boston, pianist Jeremy Denk explores the musical and romantic bonds between Brahms and the Schumanns. Then soprano Ying Fang sings light-hearted chansons by Bizet and achingly beautiful songs by Rachmaninoff, plus Schubert's tempestuous "Night and Dreams."
  • A classical music “Romance” is not the same thing as a Hollywood romance. (Some say it’s better!)
  • Violist Roger Tapping was a frequent guest in our studios when he was teaching here in Boston, bringing boundless warmth and generosity to performances and conversation.
  • In an encore broadcast from the 2021 Tanglewood season, Yefim Bronfman returns to the Berkshires as the soloist in Beethoven’s impassioned Piano Concerto No. 3, and Andris Nelsons conducts the Boston Symphony Orchestra in a rhapsodic work by Iman Habibi.
  • Like father, like son? A Daddy’s Girl? We’re celebrating Father’s Day with the Bachs, the Mozarts, the Liszts, and the Wiecks.
  • Stefan Jackiw is the soloist in Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5, and Alan Gilbert leads the Boston Symphony in rarely heard works by Schumann and Stenhammar.
  • In an encore broadcast of the BSO from 2017, Hilary Hahn is the guest soloist in Dvorák’s jovial Violin Concerto, and Gustavo Gimeno leads Schumann’s verdant “Spring” Symphony.
