12-15 March, 19-22 March. Albrecht conducts Schumann and Brahms instead of Daniele Gatti.
Due to ill health Daniele Gatti is not able to conduct and his place will be taken by Marc Albrecht. The S. Cecilia orchestra and chorus perform two Schumann symphonies alongside two choral works by Brahms. In the first series Schumann's the first and third symphonies are performed along side Brahms choral works Rhapsody for contralto, with soloist Sara Mingardo. In the second series Schumann's second and fourth symphonies are coupled with Brahms Schicksalslied (Song of Destiny) which is considered one of his best choral works.
