Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival
Influential Friendships offers masterworks by three eminent composers of the Romantic period, whose works and lives were deeply connected and influenced one another. Schumann encouraged and supported Brahms as Brahms mentored and championed Dvorak. Among them, they produced some of the best-loved music of their age. This extraordinary program opens with an unusual combination of string trio by Dvorak, followed by Brahms’ magnificent Clarinet Trio, and ends with the brilliant Schumann Piano Quintet. What better way to celebrate the anniversary season than to highlight the Festival musicians making exceptional music by composers who were close friends!
