Inner Voices, Outer Worlds | Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama | Weekend Pass £50-60schumann

“I have been composing so much that it really seems uncanny at times” wrote Robert Schumann. “I should like to sing myself to death, like a nightingale”. For Schumann, music was life, and even his smallest works contain worlds. With some of Britain’s most respected living chamber musicians, this weekend is a celebration of friendship, imagination, and a genius whose vision simply never grows any less fresh.
