Schumann: Davidsbündlertänze, Concert sans orchestre, Kreisleriana

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
For some reason, DG has chosen to repackage Maurizio Pollini's two most recent Schumann discs as a single two-disc set. Who can understand the ways of record companies? But whatever the motivation may be, it is good to have these performances all available in one place. While Pollini's Schumann is not to everyone's taste -- some find his virtuoso playing too cool and his bracing interpretations too intellectual -- for those who revere Pollini, his Schumann is a tonic after nearly two centuries of sloppy and sentimental performance practice.
