Schumann and the Songwriters

Schumann and the Songwriters

NAC Back Stage / NAC Salon

Setting words to music, expressing the inexpressible…

Song writing has been with us for millennia, but Robert Schumann will always stand out as an original voice and unique craftsman.  He wrote about the Romantic ideals of nature, love, and loss– universal topics which, in the right hands, become intimate and personal, no matter what century.  Canadian songwriters react to interpretations of Schumann’s lieder and take us through their own creative process. 

Hosted by Petr Cancura, with special guest Alexander Shelley
