Schumann Symphony n.3

Written just a few years before his death, Schumann’s 3rd symphony is one of his most popular works. 
Here’s a walk through this masterpiece with audio excerpts.

Creative dissonance

Composing is a reflection of everyday life and how you live your emotions throughout it. Live mildly and you’ll get bland notes out of your pen. But why do that when you can have no fear of right or wrong and listen to the radio in colors?

Drowning culture

The Italian government cuts once again orchestra funds. The country of culture keeps drowning.

Diverging rails

A recent interview to Franz Welser-Möst got me thinking about Karl Böhm and how much a certain approach can affect the end result of a production.

The rape of Opera

The recent production of Guillame Tell at ROH staged a rape scene. Does it help the opera or does it take away from the music?
