Schumann’s “Rhenish” Symphony: Finishing Touches Rehearsal

Schumann’s “Rhenish” Symphony: Finishing Touches Rehearsal
Abravanel Hall
123 W South Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84101, USA Get Directions


Start your morning off right with brunch bites and a behind-the-scenes look at the process of bringing our concerts to the stage. Finishing Touches gives our audience the opportunity to observe working rehearsals; selections from the program will be rehearsed at the discretion of the conductor.

Creative Partner David Robertson leads us through a picturesque journey to the Rhine River, Finland, and New England. Originally titled “Morning on the Rhine,” Schumann shares his musical vista of the great river in his Third Symphony—listen closely and you’ll hear the flowing water! Sibelius captures the brisk atmosphere of his native Finland in his tone poem En Saga, and Ives’ Three Places in New England paints a quaint soundscape of Connecticut and Massachusetts with hints of American folk tunes and marching bands.
