Notes & Reviews:

This concept album presents deeply felt romantic and thought-provoking modern music by Clara Schumann and Heinz Holliger juxtaposed in a way that deepens the understanding of both. These great performance from Richter and Varjon, and from the joint vocal and orchestral forces under Holliger's baton, celebrate his 70th birthday on May 21, 2009.

Renowned Swiss composer/oboist Holliger pays tribute to Robert Schumann, whith two new pieces plus Clara Schumann's Romanzen for cello and piano. A unique programme links the past and the future. The Schumann and Holliger's response, Romancendres, feature virtuoso cello from Christoph Richter, and pianist Denes Varjon.
