About This Performance

This concert is supported by the Adele and John Gray Endowment Fund.

Making his PCMS solo recital debut, Israeli-born Matan Porat presents Carnaval, a program based on Schumann’s masterpiece. Performed without intermission, this 65-minute concert intersperses Schumann’s 21 character pieces with short compositions by 19 different composers. All relate to the characters or the music of Schumann through motivic connections, riddles, or games. The result is an entirely new view of Carnaval.

Program featuring Schumann’s Carnaval, Op. 9, and short works by 19 different composers from Couperin to Kurtág
