At a time when Schumann was crazed with passion for his fiancée Clara, his overflowing inspiration created the Fantasie in C major, op.17, to breathtaking peaks. The ghostly universe inhabited by the figure of the musician Kreisler, invented by the Romantic writer Ernest Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann, haunted the mind of the bipolar composer leading to the ‘bizarre, demented music’ of Kreisleriana, op.16. Dating from the same period it concentrates into eight wildly contrasting pieces the nightmarish atmosphere, the bitter chasms and poetic visions, of a literally fantastic landscape. Jean-Philippe Collard seizes the Schumann aesthetic and opens up infinite horizons from which one does not emerge unscathed.
