About

This new recording presents two of Schumannís best and most famous chamber music works.

Schumann composed his first 23 Opus numbers exclusively for piano solo, then poured out a rich stream of Lieder. He came relatively late to orchestral and chamber music.

His Piano Quintet and String Quartets are firmly rooted in the Viennese classical style of Beethoven and Mendelssohn, but Schumann imbued them with his own unique 'fantastic' language, a free and dreamlike imagination, full of diverse characters and ideas.

These are excellent performances by one of the leading Dutch string quartets, the Daniel Quartet, joined in the Piano Quintet by KlŠra WŁrtz, whose Schumann recordings for Brilliant Classics have met with great critical acclaim.
