Sunday Concerts: Brahms & the Schumanns

In a programme specially devised to celebrate the song programme which has been a highlight of the 2023/24 season at Conway Hall, Roger Vignoles and Artistic Director Simon Callaghan come together with a quartet of talented young singers led by Ferrier award-winning soprano Jessica Cale. Their programme showcases songs and piano duets by Brahms, Mendelssohn, Robert and Clara Schumann, and culminates in a performance of Brahms’s Liebeslieder-Walzer, a collection of love songs in Ländler style for four voices and piano duet, a work which may have been inspired by his love for Clara Schumann.
