Presentation of the CD

The CD "The Schumann Circle" proposes major works from three romantic, German composers: Robert Schumann, his wife Clara Schumann and their friend Johannes Brahms.

Robert Schumann composed his Sonata for violin and piano no 2 during his last creative years in 1851. The outer movements are fast and decided, whereas the slow movement is more tender and intimate.

Clara Schumann, one of the few female composer of her century, dedicated her Three Romances of 1853 « to the famous friend and musician Joseph Joachim », the violinist who introduced Brahms to the Schumann. This pieces are sensitive and romantic.

Fascinated by the young Johannes Brahms, Robert Schumann, who had founded and for ten years had been the editor of the Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, took up his pen again and published under the title « Neue Bahnen » (« New Ways »), an enthusisatic article proclaiming Brahms as one of the greatest talents of the new generation. Brahms composed his Second Violin Sonata in Switzerland, near the lake of Thune. He repeateldly exploits the violin's resemblance with the human voice.
