Overview

More than 15 years since her acclaimed album of Carnaval and Kreisleriana, Mitsuko Uchida celebrates Schumann with her first recordings of two of his best-loved works for solo piano – Davidsbündlertänze and Fantasie. With this new album, recorded at the Maltings at Snape, Dame Mitsuko shares the wealth of her experience as a Schumann interpreter by bringing to these enigmatic, questing pieces her celebrated musicality and depth of feeling.

Written after Schumann was again in touch with his beloved, Clara -- whose father was determined she should never marry him -- the Davidsbündlertänze are at once an outpouring of Schumann's feelings for her and a struggle between the two sides of the composer's own musical nature. Fantasie is a deeply introspective soliloquy, beautifully reflected through the emotional complexity of Mitsuko Uchida's pianism. From the Label
