Product Description

The Jacques Loussier Trio - including Loussier, bassist Benoit Dunoyer de Segonzac and drummer André Arpino - brings its jazz sensibility to the work of Robert Schumann with the release of 'Schumann: Kinderszenen (Scenes from Childhood)'. The Loussier Trio recording puts its unique improvisational spin on the 13-song opus that Schumann composed in 1838 as a fond tribute to his childhood. For more than five decades, pianist Jacques Loussier has explored the fertile ground where the structure and traditions of classical music intersect with the spontaneous and exploratory nature of jazz. In the early years of his career, his Play Bach Trio focused on developing improvisatory compositions around the works of Johann Sebastian Bach. In later years - with the aid of a newly formed trio assembled in the 1980s - Loussier expanded his repertoire by taking a similar approach to composers like Debussy, Ravel, Vivaldi, Beethoven and others. "This particular work by Schumann is ideal for reinterpretation in a jazz setting," says Loussier. "Childhood is perhaps the most playful and carefree time of one's life. In the same sense, jazz is perhaps the most imaginative and carefree kind of music ever composed. It only makes sense, then, to reinterpret the compositions by Schumann that capture the most memorable and cherished moments of his youth." Personnel: Jacques Loussier (piano), Benoit Dunoyer de Segonzac (bass), André Arpino (drums)

I can honestly say that I love this CD. I rediscovered Jaques Loussier through Amazon, with Play Bach which I still have as an LP from my much younger days. Then I discovered there is more to be bought and listened to. I used to play this music on the piano and have always liked it so I chose this version. What more needs to be said, it appeals to me, it`s simplicity and the clean piano playing it is really beautiful to listen too. I reccomend it.

Schumann on the jazzier side 8 Mar 2013
By John J. Puccio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
These are mostly gentle readings, always true to the composer's intent, never inflated, never glamorized or revved up. Of course, they don't sound like your usual Schumann, either, which is the point. It's the best of both worlds, classical and jazz, scripted and improvisational coming head to head, with Schumann none the worse for wear.
