The Schumann Album

by Gábor Farkas (piano)

This recording offers a selection of the most original and emblematic piano compositions of Schumann composed in his early, very creative years, between 1834 and 1839. This was the period when Schumann developed his characteristic musical language as attested by his famous piano cycles, each labelled as unorthodox and eccentric in its own way and also reflecting the young composer’s encounter with the works of Jean Paul, Schubert and Beethoven – all playing a key role in the conception of his unique piano cycles.
