Notes and Editorial Reviews


SCHUMANN Album for the Young, op. 68 Florian Uhlig (pn) HANSSLER 98.013 (78: 29)


In the past, I have mostly listened to the Karl Engel recording of Schumann’s marvelous Album for the Young, which was recorded in 1974 as part of Engel’s complete Schumann piano works. I believe those recordings are out of print. More recently I have been totally satisfied with the more recent recording on Naxos by Rico Gulda. Florian Uhlig’s new Read more recording, also part of a complete Schumann series, is gentler, and more nuanced, than the Gulda. It is also more mannered, as if the virtuoso in him is made uneasy by the simplicity of these works. I am not sure he is exactly wrong when he responds to Schumann’s instruction langsamer in the untitled number 21 with an extreme ritard, but it certainly draws attention to itself. Uhlig plays the lovely “Erster Verlust” slowly and with the care that first longings demand. Gulda’s tempo is quicker and more efficient without sacrificing the lyricism of the piece. I see these as simply two different valid approaches. Both have reminded me of how much lovely music Schumann produced with the utmost skill and simplicity. I don’t think readers who already own the Gulda will feel a need for this new recording, but it is a worthy alternative.
