These magnificent Schumann performances, by some of the finest Hungarian musicians to emerge during the 1970s, illustrate to perfection why the music of this German composer continues to fascinate audiences as much today as it did when it first appeared about 175 years ago.

Schumann's passionate and ambiguous nature is encapsulated in works that range across the entire garnut of human emotions.

They are complemented by some of the most popular and delightful works by Debussy and Bartók.

“A Schumann treasure-trove. Kocsis is at his peak in Kinderszenen and the Piano Quintet. Schiff is a charismatic fantasist in the Symphonic Studies and Kreisleriana.”
