Schumann’s “Rhenish” Symphony

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


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.


Join us for a pre-concert chat about the evening’s program with Assistant Conductor Matthew Straw joined by guest artists and symphony musicians, held 45 minutes prior to the performance start time in the First Tier Room.
