After a packed and thrilling fortnight, The Schumann Project draws to a close with a star cast and a wonderful programme. Two of Schumann's cycles for four singers and piano are at the heart of tonight's performance. The Minnespiel, Op. 101, sets poems of Schumann's beloved Friedrich Rückert, in a series of eight solos, duets and quartets. The Spanische Liebeslieder, Op. 138, follows a similar pattern, but with the ensemble including four hands at the piano; an inspiration for Brahms's later Liebeslieder Walzer. Together with other songs and duets, they form a fitting and uplifting send-off to the Festival.
