Houston Symphony
Andrés Orozco-Estrada, conductor

Celebrate Valentine’s Day week with romantic ballads and grand choral music including highlights from Scenes from Goethe’s Faust and Pilgrimage of the Rose.

Robert Schumann Festival: Angels and Demons

Join Andrés Orozco-Estrada and the Houston Symphony, alongside headliners Benjamin Grosvenor and Alisa Weilerstein, for a deep dive into the trials and the triumphs, the love and the madness, the man and the music.

Led by Orozco-Estrada, the Schumann Festival is a comprehensive exploration of the works of composer Robert Schumann, with performances in Jones Hall, but also in other venues (to be named) around the city. “Angels and Demons” examines the Schumann oeuvre in all its breadth and depth, delving into every facet of the work by one of the very first composers to take up Beethoven’s unspoken challenge that music could be a place for deep, personal expression.

Musical works include the composer’s four symphonies, the piano concerto with soloist Benjamin Grosvenor, the cello concerto with soloist Alisa Weilerstein, and choral selections from Romances and Ballads, Six Songs, Spanish Songs and Maiden Songs.
