Tickets will be short in supply but the concerts will be long in excitement as Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony bring you a thrilling celebration of what makes American music great!

Schumann Piano Concerto
Thursday, 24 October, 2019 7:30PM
Schumann's Piano Concerto owes a great debt to his wife, the composer and pianist Clara Schumann. From the yearning first movement to the joyful finale, her influence can be heard throughout as the piano and orchestra dance together in a tightly woven choreography. Composed as a tribute to her mother, Anna Clyne's Within Her Arms is a somber, deeply felt meditation on life and loss for string orchestra. Mendelssohn’s Third Symphony revisits the awe he felt as a young man in Edinburgh, beholding the ruined castle of Mary, Queen of Scots.
