Schumann: Chamber Music
Schumann: Chamber Music (Decca 480 3610)
SKU: 16181
AU $8.95

Label: Decca Cat. No.: 480 3610 Medium: CD No. Discs: 1

Late in the 1840s, Schumann entered a chamber music phase. It was, it is said, motivated partly by financial reasons... creating a body of chamber works that could be played by talented amateurs in their own homes. Many of the works on this disc date from 1849. Significantly, for collectors, one of these - the Andante and Variations - receives its first release on CD and marks Vladimir Ashkenazy's first recording of chamber music for Decca. The same sessions also included duo piano recordings with Malcolm Frager, from which the Study in Canon Form emanates. Other notable duo collaborations on this disc include Rostropovich and Britten (Funf Stucke im Volkston), Holliger and Brendel (Drei Romanzen, Abendlied) and Ashkenazy with Tuckwell in the 1974 (Adagio and Allegro) and with Franklin Cohen in 1990 (Fantasiestucke).

Artists: Vladimir Ashkenazy [piano], Malcolm Frager [piano], Amaryllis Fleming [cello], Terence Weil [cello], Barry Tuckwell [horn], Heinz Holliger [oboe], Alfred Brendel [piano], Franklin Cohen [clarinet], Mstislav Rostropovich [cello], Benjamin Britten [piano].
