The Young Robert Schumann

  • by
Robert Schumann

Our previously scheduled salon, “Piano Players and Player Pianos: Mechanical Instruments, Human Performances,” has been postponed and replaced with a new salon, “The Young Robert Schumann.” In it, pianist and musicologist Ji Young Kim and the CCHK’s artist-scholar in residence Mike Lee will play Schumann’s Papillons, Impromptus on a Romance by Clara Wieck, and the Piano Sonata in F-sharp minor on the CCHK’s Regier-Graf piano (ca. 1824). The program explores multiple sides of the composer’s early pianism and expressive world: the masked ball, forms miniature and large, and the influence of Jean Paul and J. S. Bach.

The event takes place on Friday, October 28 at 5PM in the Guerlac Room of Cornell’s historical A. D. White House.
