Notes & Reviews:

Rediscover the two sides of Richard Schumann through two of his late piano and violin sonatas. With extensive liner notes, detailing the presence of Florestan and Eusebuis (Schumann's alter egos) in both works, violinist Svetlana Tsivinskaya and pianist Natalia Tokar offer warmth, boldness and intensity in their performance of op. 105 and op. 121. A master of the German lied (romantic art song), Schumann exposes his vivaciousness, tenderness and internal struggle throughout both sonatas, giving performer and listener alike a glimpse into creative genius. Russian natives Ms. Tsivinskaya and Ms. Tokar perform regularly throughout the United States.
