This new recording features two lesser known pianistic masterworks by the young Schumann: the F minor Piano Sonata, also know as 'Concerto without orchestra', in which the classical sonata form is infused with Schumann’s unique romantic outpourings, and the Humoreske, the last of his piano cycles in which Schumann’s alter egos Florestan and Eusebius (the fiery/passion ate and the dreamy/intimate) make their presence.

Young Italian pianist Vincenzo Maltempo attracted worldwide attention with his staggering recordings of piano works by Alkan - its three volumes (issued on Piano Classics) collected numerous 5 star reviews in the musical press: Guardian (“exhilarating, a real revelation!”), Diapason, Gramophone, Piano News.

This new recording shows a sensitivity and close affinity for the musical world of Schumann. In a quasi improvisatory style he captures the essence of the idiom of free association, impulsiveness, tenderness and passion.
