Schumann’s rare masterpiece, The Pilgrimage of the Rose, is an intimate, art-song-inspired oratorio about a rose who yearns to become human and experience love. Full of choral, ensemble and solo writing, this score transforms the original fairytale into an allegory of what it means to be human and to love. Also on the program, Bartók’s Divertimento for Strings, is brimming with sonorities, rustic Hungarian rhythms and musical discovery.
