Join us THIS WEEKEND for Schumann and Mozart! Schumann composed his “Spring” Symphony during one of the happiest periods in his life, shortly after marrying his cherished Clara Wieck. With music as enticing and life-affirming as its subject, the “Spring” Symphony remains one of his most treasured compositions.
