Notes & Reviews:
Schumannia - No better title could have been selected for this SACD! Guido Schiefen and Markus Kreul present Robert Schumann's works for cello and piano. The fact that the composer originally intended only his "Stücke im Volkston" for these instruments is hardly detrimental to this enterprise - but just the opposite! Schiefen's highly imaginative, multifaceted, and virtuosic cello playing with excellent bowing enables the listener to experience Schumann's chamber music in a very special way and enhances these wonderful songs without words with superb new magic.
The duo members also display their great class in the "Fantasy Pieces" and the "Three Romances." Here absolutely manic enthusiasm for romanticism sparklingly radiates from each and every measure - a gripping musical experience captured on a finely balanced Super Audio CD - just like the real thing and of course in three dimensions. This dual layer hybrid SACD is playable on all CD players.
