Product description

Product Description

“For me, Schumann is the great humanist,” says Piotr Anderszewski. “His purity and honesty touch me profoundly.” This new recital brings together three of the composer’s more rarely performed keyboard works, including the last piano music he completed.

“I fell back in love with Schumann a couple of years ago when I played the Humoreske,” explains Piotr Anderszewski. “For me, Schumann is the great humanist: there is more to his work and his life than music, and his purity and honesty touch me profoundly ... There is even greatness in the failures he experienced as a composer – with the orchestra and in matters of form … He doesn’t achieve the perfection of Chopin, Brahms or Mendelssohn.

For this recital, Anderszewski turns his attention to some of Schumann’s less frequently performed works. The Humoreske of 1839, far more serious-minded and substantial than its name might suggest, is built in five discrete sections. Mercurial in it shifts of mood, it reflects the composer’s report to his wife Clara that, while working on the piece, he was “laughing and crying, all at once”.
