Musicians from the New York Philharmonic & Gilles Vonsattel, piano play Beethoven, Brahms, and Clara Schumann

Live in-person concert
Gilles Vonsattel

92Y continues its collaboration with the New York Philharmonic with an exquisite program — an extension of the orchestra’s new Schumann Connection series centered on the music of Robert Schumann and new works reflecting on the Robert-Clara relationship.

This intimate chamber music concert, featuring Musicians from the New York Philharmonic and award-winning pianist Gilles Vonsattel, explores the intimacy of the Clara Schumann/Brahms connection. Featuring a selection of Clara Schumann’s solo piano works and her character-filled Three Romances, Op. 22, juxtaposed with Brahms’ C-Minor Piano Quartet, which magnificently captures his unrequited love for Clara in music, the program offers a microcosm of a rich creative and emotional world interweaving creator and muse. Also on the program, an early Beethoven work of pure sunshine, the composer’s G-Major String Trio.
