Born just a year apart, Mendelssohn and Schumann were true contemporaries. Their music reveals a similar love for the classical forms of Beethoven and Haydn, but also highly individual approaches to creating playful and triumphant chamber music.

Celebrate with the musicians at a post-concert wine reception following each Summer Evenings performance.
