Notes & Reviews:

This CD presents two highlights of the German Romantic repertoire, works written by Robert Schumann for his beloved wife Clara. The quintet, dedicated to Clara, and the canons were part of the permanent repertoire she played until the end of her career. The quintet especially, with its difficult and almost soloistic piano part, allowed Clara to show her extraordinary skills as one of the most famous pianists of her time. La Gaia Scienza is a chamber ensemble that has made numerous acclaimed recordings on Winter & Winter, performing on historic instruments in a historic building.
