Kinderszenen, Op. 15

Novelletten (8), Op. 21


Already at its 9th installment, Florian Uhlig continues his explorations as he draws near the conclusion of the first truly complete edition of the two-handed piano music of Robert Schumann.

With the Kinderszenen op.15 and the Novelletten op.21, as well as hitherto largely neglected contemporaneous pieces, Uhlig explores the musical relationship of Robert and Clara. This most famous of musical couplings was of course - gorgeous! Hardly any other pianist has such a feeling for the hidden undercurrents of Schumann’s scores, and no other pianist can send the sparks flying from the surface of Schumann's music with as much enthusiasm.

A true discovery for the Schumann connoisseur. Joachim Draheim’s entertaining booklet notes are once again a treasure trove of knowledge that will delight both the Schumann scholar and the casual listener.

Davidsbündlertänze, Op. 6


With the 8th installment of the first true integral recording of Schumann's works for solo piano, Florian Uhlig reaches the midway point of his widely acclaimed and much admired project. That Schumann deserve such a presentation, is undisputed, and by organizing each installment by musical themes, allows for both a more accessible and representative immersion into the world of the composer’s thoughts and feelings.

This new CD deals with the dual nature of the composer and writer: It finds its finest expression in the "Davidsbündlertänze" (1st version, Op. 6), in the idea of Davidsbündler in which different views on art mint in the figures Florestan and Eusebius which are also liable for the individual pieces of this cycle. The typical romantic play of rubrics, musical ciphers and pseudonyms can also be found in the "Carnaval" Op. 9 – a work which Schumann himself felt was too difficult to be performed and understood.

Together with these two great piano cycles, Florian Uhlig has collected some related miniatures that either Schumann composed and later rejected, or for one reason or another was never included in subsequent printed editions. Among these are at least three premiere recordings. That Florian Uhlig convincingly masters these emotionally complex works in both technical and expressive terms requires no further mention. Once again, he has assembled a CD program that clearly sets itself apart from other typical recitals.

“Uhlig, now well into his complete Schumann cycle, is a musician to his fingertips, with a sense of style and an affinity for the piano so natural that one forgets all about technique. Melodically, he could tell many singers a thing or two about inflection, and his buoyant rhythmic profiles and clarity of phrasing are blessedly free from the tyranny of meter…the seldom heard miscellaneous pieces, by contrast, are quite outstandingly well done” BBC Music Magazine, November 2015

Volume 7 of what will become the first truly complete recording of Schumann's piano works presents a hitherto underexposed aspect of his work: those compositions in which he deals with counterpoint. That these pieces are no more dry exercises in fugue becomes more than clear when listening to these two CDs.

In his “contrapuntal” works Schumann blends a rigorous style with the Romantic characterpiece in a harmonious way. The studies for the pedal piano are a particularly clear example of how he adapted a Romantic tone to a fugal composition: melancholy, graceful, lyrical and flowing –played here in an arrangement for piano two hands by Florian Uhlig. On this program, there are numerous surprising pieces which help to provide a truly complete overall view of Schumann’s genius in a most beautiful way.

“Uhlig tackles all of this challenging repertoire with empathy and finesse. Even intellectual studies and student efforts emerge from his hands as expressive music first and foremost. The voicing is clear, the tone rich and energetic, the feel for nuance attuned with razor-sharp intuition.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2014 ****

“Uhlig is recording Schumann’s complete oeuvre for piano, and he means every note...Uhlig offers his own compelling two-hand reduction of the Op 56 Studies and Op 58 Sketches for pedal-piano (a piano with quasi-organ pedals).” Sunday Times, 27th April 2014

This release marks the sixth volume of the complete recordings of Schumann’s piano works.

“Uhlig's playing is by turns raptly beautiful and full of energy...He shows us just how Schumann's affection for his children was reflected in empathetic creations that cede no musical instpiration to the relative simplicity of the technique required to play them...This recording is not only instructive, it's a treasure trove of gorgeous music.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2014 ****

Schumann & His Daughters


Schumann:

Three Sonatas for the Young, Op. 118

Wiegenliedchen, Op. 124 No. 6

Supplement to Op. 68

Birthday Album for Marie

Schlummerlied, Op. 124 No. 16


Robert and Clara Schumann were certainly exceptional parents - not just by the standards of the 19th century. Especially striking was how much time Robert devoted to his daughter Marie, their firstborn. Marie, Elise and Julie were the daughters for whom Schumann composed these little pieces and with whom he also made music; and these are NOT “childish” pieces. This CD is a delightful overview of the pieces and little melodies that Schumann produced with and for his girls and practically brings to life again the spirit of the Schumann household. As might be expected, a number of first recordings are represented on this CD.

“Uhlig has come up with a delightful concept for its fifth volume: music that Schumann wrote for his three eldest daughters...Uhlig's playing ranges from the absolutely excellent to the slightly dutiful, as is perhaps inevitable in such a comprehensive series.” BBC Music Magazine, September 2013 ****

“This is a fascinating disc to dip into...Uhlig’s playing is sublime – incredibly witty and attentive to detail, though never to the detriment of the music’s flow. Nicely recorded too, with interesting sleeve notes.” The Arts Desk, 18th May 2013

“Uhlig has already shown that he is a perceptive Schumann interpreter, but his playing here, especially in the extrovert Faschingsschwank pieces, can seem a little staid and monochrome” The Guardian, 29th November 2012 ***

“Uhlig's playing is in many ways exemplary: graceful, light of touch, strong of srping and in excellent control of voicing while navigating Schumann's intricate textures...[His] approach is unsentimental and straightforward; but despite many beauties, it would be nice to hear slightly more highlighting of the sheer whimsy in Schumann's writing” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2012 ***

“Uhlig does Schumann proud in every respect. He mantains an admirable balance of brilliance and good sense, with superb voicing, delineating every silken skein of the cat-'s cradle textures with clarity and grace. And though the music celebrates virtuosity - to which Uhlig rises impeccably - there's still a touching humility to his interpretations.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2012 ****
