Three indispensable classics by Robert Schumann make up this stellar concert conducted by the marvelous Maxim Emelyanichev, live from Toulouse’s Halle aux Grains! The program kicks off with the musical fireworks of the Overture from Genoveva, before piano virtuoso Adam Laloum joins the Orchestre national du Capitole de Toulouse and the young maestro in a memorable performance of the poignant Piano Concerto. The evening closes out with the Fourth Symphony, which prominently features the recurrent "Clara theme," a tribute to the composer’s beloved wife.
