After the success of the launch last year, we have now added two more videos into this series, launching this August. Get ready to be dazzled by these special performances!
Michael Wilson, our Principal Oboe and Hong Kong pianist Rachel Cheung present two pieces by the Schumanns. The first work, Drei Romanzen (“Three Romances”), was written by Clara Schumann, which is intended for a violin and piano. The second piece, Adagio and Allegro, was actually written for a French horn and piano. Clara concluded this work saying “it’s just the sort of piece I like, brilliant, fresh and passionate. In this performance, let Michael and Rachel show you a different timbre of the works.
