A Spring Thaw

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.
