Hoffmann (1776-1822) has gone down in history as the author of the fantastic tales that embody the Romantic fascination with the supernatural and as a visionary critic who condensed the essence of musical Romanticism. However, he was a multi-faceted man with very eclectic interests that ranged from composition to literature, painting, performance, orchestral conducting, criticism and music theory. This series focuses on his double facet as a composer, with various chamber works, and writer, through works that were inspired by his literature.
This series has been programmed to coincide with the performances of Offenbach’s opera The Tales of Hoffmann that will take place at the Teatro Real.
