Land of Longing

[title]Land of Longing[desc]Concordia University of Edmonton Sunday, March 5, 2023, 3 – 5pm The Concordia Symphony Orchestra presents its Winter program "Land of the Longing".​ Come join us for an evening of inspiring symphonic music from three titans of the repertoire: Schumann, Beethoven, and Mendelssohn. The program pulls from the spirited verve of Beethoven's Egmont overture to the contemplative depiction of Fingal's cave by Mendelssohn. This musical crossing is centered around Schumann's iconic symphony no. 3, "Rhenish". Always inventive and always ahead of its time, this symphony showcases Schumann's genius at its height but also foreshadows the melancholy traps of the composer's final years.
