Fall 2019:  A Triangle for the Ages

Our 14th season, entitled “A Love for the Ages.” is all about the relationship between Robert and Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms. When Brahms finally made his 

introduction to the Schumann household music history would be forever changed, but the journey that all three of them would embark upon would be filled with emotional turmoil and unrequited love.

Join Dr. Robert Greenberg and the Alexander String Quartet Mondays at 9pm for Explorations in Music, “A Triangle For The Ages.”

It’s not often we hear a story of love and heartbreak – and the music that was specifically composed for it. One such story befell the 19th century composer Johannes Brahms and Clara Schumann. Meghan Laslocky is author of The Little Book of Heartbreak and she shares their story of love and the music that told it with KALW’s Hana Baba.
