Robert Schumann’s Kreisleriana is a piece we often think of when we think of virtuosic romantic piano music—flashy, brilliant, massive, astonishingly and jaw-droppingly hard. Schumann was both a composer and a virtuoso pianist. Pianist Conrad Tao, himself a composer and a virtuoso, performs the Schumann and other works by composer/pianists that explore the shifting equilibrium between composer and performer.
This concert, which is supported by a grant from the PNC Foundation, is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required. Please note that performances are not suitable for children under the age of eight.
