Schumann: Piano Concerto; Introduction and Allegro appassionato, Op. 92; Introduction and Allegro, Op. 134

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
A splendid coupling of fine performances of first-rate music, what more could the discerning listener want? Putting Schumann's three works for piano and orchestra together on a single disc is an obvious idea that has only too rarely been realized. But, of course, it makes perfect sense: Schumann's "Piano Concerto" is one of the great Romantic piano concertos and his "Introduction and Allegro appassionato" and "Introduction and Allegro," while not perhaps at the same exalted level, are still poetic, virtuosic, and attractive works.
