Harald Krebs, presents Robert Redeemed: The Beauty of Schumann’s Late Songs at the University of Victoria.

Robert Schumann’s late works have often been maligned as the products of a composer whose creative powers declined as a result of mental illness – an assessment that stems from misunderstandings of Schumann and his music.

Both through commentary and live performance focusing on the Lied genre, this lecture will demonstrate that Schumann’s unique voice continued to sing during his last years.

Takes place at the Phillip T. Young Recital Hall, Jan. 24, 7:30 p.m. Admission is free
