“Os pássaros da noite (The Birds of Night)”: NY Phil and Dudamel
“The melancholy birds of night still flit round me from time to time, yet they can be driven off by music,” wrote Robert Schumann, in 1848, in a letter to a friend. This passage, with its contrasting light and darkness, inspired Andreia Pinto Correia’s new work “Os pássaros da noite (The Birds of Night).” The New York Philharmonic gives the piece its World Premiere this week with Gustavo Dudamel on the podium as part of The Schumann Connection, the Orchestra’s exploration of creative partnerships in the spirit of the one shared by Robert and Clara Schumann.
