Notes & Reviews:

The unparalleled Welte Mystery Series by TACET has become a real treasure trove, not only for researchers but also for every music lover, as the example of "Traumerei" Op. 15 No. 7 by Robert Schumann shows: Not only does the music sound absolutely realistic and believable, and definitely not machine-like, but on top of everything else, you get a first-hand impression, so to speak, of how Robert Schumann was played after his death, yet still in the same century. It offers a comparison with a myriad of modern recordings. The series continues with this album featuring pianist Alfred Grunfeld. Born in 1851, these Welte rolls were recorded between January 15-20, 1905.
