About

This CD boxed set, a retrospective from our focus on composers during the Festival in 2010, is part of a wonderful tradition in the Edition Klavier-Festival Ruhr. With Volume 26 we are now releasing, for the sixth time in a row, a set of three CDs with recordings from previous season. In 2010 we celebrated the 200th birthdays of Robert Schumann and Frédéric Chopin.

To give their respective anniversary celebrations a worthy finishing touch, we now dedicate an entire CD to each one of these two major composers.
