February 2019 Concert

2:30 pm
Sunday February 3, 2019


Adam Neiman, a faculty member at Roosevelt University, headlines our Virtuoso Piano concert with one of the great Romantic concertos, that by Robert Schumann. This all-German Romantic program opens with one of Mendelssohn’s most exciting overtures and concludes with Brahms’ towering First Symphony, his tribute to the symphonies of Beethoven, in particular the C Minor Fifth Symphony.
