The intimate surroundings of the Victory Hall at Broughton-in-Furness, is the rather appropriate venue for a musical exploration of the fascinating and turbulent love triangle between Robert & Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms.
The third concert and the centrepiece of this festival – “Love and Obsession” – focusses on the Romantic era’s most famous love triangles between Robert & Clara Schumann, and Johannes Brahms. The fabric of the two piano quartets is woven through with songs by all three composers, thus telling the story through their music.
