The name Schumann stands for Romanticism. While Robert is considered one of the most well-known representatives of High Romanticism, his namesake Georg embodies the late stage of this era, initially leaving his mark with instrumental music and later choral music, being regarded as one of the most progressive composers of his generation at the beginning of the 20th century. From 1900 onwards, he led the Berlin Sing-Akademie for 50 years. During this eventful time, he was a solid anchor with his commitment to struggling artists and the music of Johann Sebastian Bach.

The Monteverdi Choir Würzburg will perform four pieces by the 1866-born composer from Königstein, which delves into deep emotions. Based on texts by Schiller and Hölderlin, the themes of longing, death, and redemption take center stage.

In the presented symphonic poems, elements of Wagner and Brahms are evident, in whose tradition the composer stands, as well as Protestant chorale melodies. He relies entirely on the choir and large orchestra for the instrumentation, omitting solo voices. Anticipate awe-inspiring sounds, overflowing chromatics, radiant harp passages, and "tones of sweet celestial peace."

The Monteverdi Choir Würzburg presents its concert guests from near and far with a special concert experience once again.
