_________________________________

We go back to the dawn of the 19th century and visit a fascinating series of connections around the explosion of musical romanticism in "BEETHOVEN TO BRAHMS… & ETA HOFFMANN."

This will be highlighted through the lens of the unique writer E.T.A. HOFFMANN (creator of the story of "The Nutcracker" and other fantastical tales); a man who deeply loved music, praised Beethoven, and worked continually to be a professional composer himself.

Hoffmann felt that music was, “… the most Romantic of all arts… it unlocks for mankind an unknown realm – a world having nothing in common with the surrounding outer world of the senses…”

In between our performed works, we will show historic imagery and speak about the highly charged nature of art and ideas of the time. Our concert aims to thoughtfully blend splendid music with perceptions about artists and composers and an unrelenting journey to express beyond words their deepest longings.
