Booklet
Bernd Glemser is one of Naxos' reliable workhorse pianists who gives a solid performance of Schumann's Symphonic Etudes and the Phantasie, Op. 17, on this disc. Glemser doesn't just sit down and play what's written. He does give thought to the character of each variation in the Etudes, and more importantly, given his affection for counterpoint, he gives a great deal of thought to the shaping of each melody, counter-melody, and harmony line. He brings out hidden countermelodies that are lost in the background harmony in other pianists' performances, adding dimension to the Etudes. The Phantasie is brisk, energetic, and fervent, but as with the more intense Etudes and other places in the Phantasie, there is a sense that the sound of the recording isn't allowing the full impact of Glemser's concentrated emotion to be heard. The expected "oomph" comes out "oh." There are also moments where a slight change in articulation would have added to the moody nature of the work, such as at the opening, where a little softer flow or shimmer in the left hand would make the right hand stand out even more. Glemser's performance of the two works may not be profound or monumental, but it is still an excellent value for the budget price. © TiVo

Hi-Res Booklet
Some of Schumann’s early songs, such as Lied für xxx, show the influence of Schubert, but it was in 1840, his ‘Year of Song’, that Schumann fully turned his attention to vocal music. The Zweistimmige Lieder, Op. 43 were the first that he composed after his marriage to Clara Wieck, and many of the songs from this time set texts on the subject of love. Schumann’s literary background and cultivated tastes mean that any such collection of his songs reads like a catalogue of the greatest poets of his time, with the tragic narratives of Mörike and Heine in the Romanzen und Balladen, Op. 64 as powerful as any opera. © Naxos

The insatiable demand for sheet music for domestic use in the 19th century meant that popular works were widely disseminated in piano duet form. Robert Schumann’s own arrangements of the Spring Symphony (in collaboration with his wife Clara Schumann) and the Fourth Symphony balance playability and fidelity to the original with tremendous skill. Clara considered the Fourth Symphony to be ‘another work from the innermost depths of Robert’s soul’, a symphony that has become one of the most quintessential of the Romantic era. © Naxos

Hi-Res Booklet
Robert Schumann’s literary background and cultivated taste is revealed in his choice of texts for musical setting. The emphasis in this collection is on songs with a narrative character, such as the tragic tale of Die feindlichen Brüder (Op. 49, No. 2) in which two brothers kill each other in a duel for love of the same girl. Further stories are drawn from those by Hans Christian Andersen. In around 1850 Schumann embarked on a series of melodramas with dramatic spoken dialogue over musical accompaniment. Notable among these lurid tiles of murder and retribution is the Ballade vom Haideknaben. © Naxos
