Schumann at the Tuckamore Festival

As the Tuckamore Chamber Music Festival launches it's 2011 season, MUSICRAFT brings you some of last year's highlights, including a celebration of the great romantic composer Robert Schumann. Nancy Dahn and Timothy Steeves (the Duo Concertante) perform Schumann's Violin Sonata opus 105 and cellist Vernon Regehr joins them for the world premiere of a CBC commissioned piano trio from Vancouver composer Jocelyn Morlock. Her dream-like work pays homage to Schumann's romantic - and sometimes tragic - spirit in a musical language that Jocelyn liken's to 'Schumann under water.'
