Schumann - Piano Works & Chamber Music VII
Fur die Jugend…
For Robert Schumann 'childhood' is inspired by his love for Clara, younger by almost ten years, for whom he composed the major part of his piano works, amongst them Kinderszenen, two Albums fur die Jugend, the Vierhandige Klavier-Stucke fur kleine und große kinder, a Kinderball and Klavier Sonaten für die Jugend. The 7th volume of Eric le Sage's complete Schumann: a set of rare quality, not to be missed, graciously assisted by Denis Pascal & Frank Braley, both Romantic piano specialists.

Schumann's chamber compositions are undoubtedly among the most important European works of the nineteenth century. Robert Schumann (1810-1856) was the archetypal Romantic composer, a man with unbounded imagination, who mastered almost every genre of his time.
His chamber music, which may be regarded as an extension of his piano music, enabled him to explore the construction of his works. This new box-set from ALPHA (seven CDs) presents for the first time Schumann's complete chamber music with piano, played by one of the great Schumann interpreters, who has been exploring this world with great success since 2005: Eric Le Sage.
The pianist is joined here by outstanding musicians Paul Meyer, Francois Salque, Franck Braley, Antoine Tamesit and others, who enable the listener to appreciate to the full these masterful works, written by genius of German Romanticism.
“in general Le Sage has shown himself to be much more convincing when collaborating with other performers than when left to his own interpretative devices. This set brings together all those chamber music recordings” The Guardian, 28th June 2012 **
