In keeping with the beginning of spring, Musical Sunday will focus on Robert Schumann’s “Spring Symphony” – a work that, according to the composer, was “born in a fiery hour”.
Schumann composed his first major orchestral work in just four days, marking the beginning of what was probably the happiest time of his life. Marcus Imbsweiler and Timo Jouko Herrmann explore the circumstances of its creation in more detail and get to the bottom of the poetic-positive power of this extraordinary symphony.

Timo Jouko Herrmann and Marcus Imbsweiler are two enthusiasts who have their very own linguistic approach to music. Imbsweiler has previously published novels and short stories about composers from Haydn to Shostakovich.
Herrmann is guest conductor of the Heidelberg Symphony Orchestra; his rediscovery of the song of joy “Per la ricuperata salute di Ofelia” composed by Salieri, Mozart and Cornetti made him famous worldwide.
