Drawing on multiple constituencies across Eastman, “Encounters with the Schumanns” focuses on the music of Robert and Clara Schumann and includes a listening session featuring pieces by Robert and Clara along with responses by Eastman faculty and invited scholars from the US and abroad; a seminar for doctoral students focusing on philosophical interpretations of Robert Schumann’s music; and an afternoon concert showcasing songs and chamber pieces by Robert and Clara performed by Eastman DMA students on both modern and historical instruments. The listening session and concert will be open to the public.

This special day is made possible by a gift from Peter Helmers in support of research and performance dedicated to the music of Robert Schumann and his contemporaries and is being co-sponsored by the Music Theory Department and the Piano Department.

Participating scholars include Benedict Taylor (University of Edinburgh), Roger Moseley (Cornell University), Michael Gallope (University of Minnesota), Eastman alum Seth Brodsky (University of Chicago), Loretta Terrigno (ESM Theory), Sarah Marlowe (ESM Theory), and Holly Watkins (ESM Musicology).
