Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

At the age of thirty-nine Schumann began composing a series of chamber works in which he dedicated himself to instruments previously neglected by him in his repertoire. He began with the Fantasy Pieces op. 73 for clarinet and piano and continued with the Adagio and Allegro in A flat major op. 70 for horn and piano and the Märchenbilder op. 113 for viola & piano. While Schumann himself wrote the violoncello version for opp. 70 and 73, Martin Ostertag produced the arrangement of op. 113 celebrating its premiere on this disc.

International Record Review, July/August 2012
This welcome account [of the Bach transcription] is an estimable one, robustly played...Purists will no doubt question the motives and validity of Schumann's re-workings of Bach...Yet it is instructive all the same to hear this music in an unfamiliar form which would have made it more accessible to many of Schumann's own nay-saying contemporaries.
