Wagner Siegfried Idyll
Schumann Symphony No. 1, “Spring”
What better way to celebrate the hint of spring in the air than with an NMPhil Coffee Concert! Enjoy this almost-spring morning of music with the gentle beauty of Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll and Schumann’s First Symphony, a work of bright brass, a driving scherzo, and more. The “Spring” Symphony premiered in 1841 with Felix Mendelssohn conducting and announced Schumann’s spot-on Romantic sensibilities to the world.
