Research Alive: After Schumann


Unveiling what makes music so magical in the ears and minds of the listener through keynote presentations featuring collaborations between researchers and performers.

After Schumann

Chris Paul Harman, Associate Professor, Music Composition
with Dominique Labelle, Professor, soprano and Stéphane Lemelin, Professor, piano

Composer Chris Paul Harman will discuss how the whole of Schumann's song cycle Frauen-Liebe und Leben (1830) served as a model for his own eight-movement After Schumann III (2020), as well as ways in which Schumann's vocal lines have been reimagined as "piano lines," with demonstrations by Dominique Labelle and Stéphane Lemelin. The presentation will conclude with the world première performance of After Schumann III.


With the safety of our community and our students’ education remaining as top priority, performances will not be open to the public. We thank our audiences for their continued support to our community and our School.
