Many of Robert Schumann's piano works are staples of the repertoire and are found in the programmes of the greatest pianists, but rarely is Album for the Young performed or recorded by first-rate musicians. This recording readdresses this disparity and reveals the character and qualities of these charming compositions.
Schumann was most at ease, most personal and innovative, in his works for piano. In his symphonies and chamber works, his writing is more conservative and reverential towards the Classical tradition, but in his piano works he created his very own forms, content and manner of expression. These works reflect his character, temperament and creative imagination most strongly and vividly.
Pianist and conductor Vladimir Feltsman is one of the most versatile and constantly interesting musicians of our time. His vast repertoire encompasses music from the Baroque to 20th-century composers. A regular guest soloist with leading symphony orchestras in the United States and abroad, he appears in the most prestigious concert series and music festivals all over the world.
