Birthday Series
Schumann at 200: Three Perspectives
TUESDAY, JUN 22, 2010

New York Times review by Allan Kozinn

Argento inaugurates its Birthday Series with three perspectives on Robert Schumann at his 200th. Argento pianist Joanna Chao will perform Liszt's stunning arrangements of two Schumann songs. In György Kurtág's "Homage a R. Sch.," music emerges from silence to a powerful climax as the imaginary Robert Schumann brings a small pantheon of characters in his circle back to life. Argento completes the concert with the premiere of Schumann's Second Symphony in an 11-player chamber arrangement by Kimmy Szeto.

Anthony Tommasini, New York Times - "At Chelsea Art Museum new music gets a setting to match.... There is something about
