About

This release brings together Robert Schumannís complete production for violin and orchestra Ė three works from the period just before the composer was confined to the mental institution where he would die within two years.

The only work here that was performed in Schumannís lifetime was the Fantasy in C major, dedicated to the violin virtuoso Joseph Joachim.

Written shortly afterwards, the Violin Concerto in D minor was also intended for Joachim, but he never performed the work in public, and it remained unperformed until 1937.

A dedicated advocate of Schumannís music, the soloist Ulf Wallin has gone back to the composer's autographs in order to present these works in their purest form. He is aided by the fine team of the Robert-Schumann-Philharmonie and their conductor Frank Beerman.
