Product Description

Review

Schumann wrote these three sonatas, each impassioned and bursting with difficult, angst-driven energy, near the end of his life. The first two were composed at speed in 1851, a prolific year. But by 1853, when he wrote the third (in A minor), Schumann was in poor mental health, heading towards the asylum and final breakdown. These works are not universally admired but this duo give as convincing a performance as any, at once febrile and lyrical, the sound well balanced, the musical invention explored to the full. What could be more beguiling than the hushed opening of the third movement of No 2, marked "softly, simply" but sounding ghostly and startling? Schumann, that most troubled genius, never fails. --Fiona Maddocks, The Observer 26 May 2013

The two musicians form a closely wrought partnership, their exceptional musical sympathy shining through the whole performance...The sincerity and beauty of this duo, enhanced by the gorgeous acoustic of London's Wigmore Hall, make for a wonderful listen. --BBC Music Magazine

This new reading is exemplary in every way, majestically and decisively rounding off what must now be the recording of choice in these works. Highly recommended. --International Record Review

Marwood and Madzar bring out these aspects strongly; their playing is clearly defined, with precise variations or articulation, and the more passionate movements come over with considerable force. Many more of the tender moments are equally successful. --Duncan Druce, Gramophone August 2013

This new reading is exemplary in every way, majestically and decisively rounding off what must now be the recording of choice in these works. Highly recommended. --International Record Review
