Schumann Symphony No.3
Gemma New conductor
Mao Fujita piano
The horns throw down a challenge, the piano strides out, and Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto is in business. Some pieces are popular for a reason, and when the awardwinning Mao Fujita makes his Liverpool debut tonight, you won’t need reminding why!
Gemma New conducts a concert that opens in heaven with Aaron Jay Kernis, and ends with Robert Schumann relaxing at a wine festival. And in between, a real surprise: a quirky little gem by Katherine Balch. Apparently she got the idea from a pop lyric and a cuckoo clock!
