Schumann: "Jekyll and Hyde"

A recital highlighting the split sides of Schumann's problematic personality. The first half contains two very famous and much loved song cycles from the very productive song year 1840: Liederkreis and Dichterliebe. In the second half we explore a much darker, later and less known side of Schumann's Lieder, with two groups composed in 1850. By this time Schumann's mental health problems were becoming apparent. These songs are the late works of a song genius and have their very own atmosphere: brooding, manic and filled with melancholy.
