Notes & Reviews:

In these two works Schumann presents his inner world of characters from the fictitious Davidsbund based on the novels of Jean-Paul, featuring such diverse personalities as Florestan, Eusebius, Estrella, Chiara, characters with whom Schumann identifies his own opposing characteristics. Florestan is his fiery, heroic and impulsive side; Eusebius is his tender, reflective and dreamy side. Denis Proshayev plunges deep into this dreamlike world, letting his fantasy run free on the whims of Schumann's 'fantastic' outpourings. His playing is totally free and spontaneous, whilst never losing the logical thread of the musical discourse.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
True to the changing atmospheres, instability, and impulsiveness Philippe Houbert acknowledges in his liner notes, Proshayev's Schumann is vibrant and colorful. Papillons overflows with energy. Davidsbundlertanze is also full of character, reminiscent of the earlier Carnaval. His understated 'Arabeske' is exquisite. Schumann enthusiasts will enjoy Proshayev's compelling perspective.
