Robert Schumann: Scenes From Goethe's Faust


Robert Schumann: Scenes From Goethe’s Faust

04/09/2010 at 08:00 PM – Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center

The greatest poetic rendering of the story of the man who sells his soul to the devil, set to music by a composer who knew very well what it is like to be haunted by demons. On the occasion of the bicentennial of Schumann’s birth, ASO completes its trilogy that began with Manfred and Das Paradies und die Peri, with the third of Schumann’s great dramatic oratorios.
