Mendelssohn and Schumann: Symphony in C on ENCORE!


WRTI presents Symphony in C under the baton of Music Director Rossen Milanov on March 17th at 4 pm. Written when Mendelssohn was only 17, his Midsummer Night's Dream Overture was the first "concert overture" - a work not intended to introduce a dramatic presentation, but to represent, complete in itself, a literary work, or story, or place.

Schumann's Symphony No. 2 was originally sketched in 1845,  but depression and poor health prevented the composer from finishing the work until October, 1846. In the face of this adversity, the uplifting tone of the symphony is remarkable. Sunday, March 17th, 4 to 6 pm.
