Schumann: Piano & Chamber Music, Vol. 10

Notes & Reviews:

Schumann's chamber music is an absolute benchmark for the first half of the century in Europe. From Brahms to Faure, from Saint-Saens and Lalo to Borodin, nobody could escape from his emotional power or his formal model. Of Schumann's works for piano & strings, posterity seems to have operated a firm rating: the Quintet is at the top, followed by the Trios and the Quartet. If we follow this logic, the Quintet for Piano & Strings would be one of the summits of the chamber music repertoire. Its little brother, the Quartet for Piano & Strings, would be a lesser replica. In this, we think that history's judgment should be open to question!
