Irish Chamber Orchestra


Schumann: Overture, Scherzo, & Finale, in E major, Op.52
: String Quartet No. 2 Choral Quartet

- interval -

Schumann: Symphony No.1, Op.38, B-flat major (Spring)

Feel the love and celebration in Schumann’s Overture, Scherzo, and Finale inspired by his marriage. An exhilarating and racy Overture is followed by a lyrical and toe-tapping Scherzo before a speedy finale that set hearts spinning! In contrast, Widmann’s slow and evocative Quartet explores the most intimate of sound worlds, stark yet beautiful. Finally, from the opening fanfares, experience the joy and exhilaration of Schumann’s infectious Spring Symphony. The openness of ICO’s textures brings freshness and clarity to this Romantic work.
