Notes & Reviews:

The Telegraph, 17th February 2015
Cooper asserts her stylistic credentials right at the start of the disc in Robert's Humoreske, playing with a warm, golden tone and fluidly finding that distinction between the extrovert and introvert traits that were key to Schumann's musical personality.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2015
Cooper has a thorough command of the Schumann language in the major works buttressing her recital...judiciously differentiated, finely balanced and sustained by a compelling impulse.

This is the eagerly awaited second volume in the new collaboration between Chandos and Imogen Cooper. In this series, she brings her virtuosity and poetic touch to the repertoire of one of the central German romantic composers. Known as a Schubert expert, she has recently turned to Schumann in an equally successful way, which she proved in her much-lauded first volume (CHAN 10755). The Snape Maltings concert hall and Nicholas Marston's detailed notes are respectively 'an excellent complement' (musicweb-international.com) and 'an added bonus' (Gramophone) to the series.
