The Chamber Orchestra of Europe will perform the complete Schumann symphonies at the Cité de la Musique, conducted by Yannick Nézet-Seguin. The young conductor from Quebec, a former student of Giulini and now the music director of the Philadelphia and Rotterdam orchestras, makes his debut on medici.tv!
"Soon, symphonies will be the only works by me to be published and listened to" Schumann wrote to Heinrich Dorn, with whom he studied composition, in a letter dated April 14 1839. He added: "I often want to crush my piano; it has become too narrow for my ideas. I admit I do not have much experience in writing for orchestras yet, but I think I will learn how to master it."
The program of this concert will present the Manfred Overture and the Symphony n°3 known as the "Rhenish " Symphony. Renaud Capuçon, guest soloist of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, will perform Violin concerto by the great Romantic composer.
This concert will be broadcast on www.citedelamusiquelive.tv and medici.tv. It will also be retransmitted on France Musique on December 5 2012 at 2 P.M.
