Notes and Editorial Reviews

This seven-disc box set from Alpha presents Robert Schumann’s complete chamber music with piano, played by a highly respected interpreter of Schumann's works, Eric Le Sage. The pianist is joined by outstanding musicians Paul Meyer, Francois Salque, Franck Braley, Antoine Tamesit, and others, who enable the listener to fully appreciate these masterful works written by genius of German Romanticism.

Robert Schumann’s chamber compositions are undoubtedly among the most important European works of the 19th century. Schumann (1810–1856) was the archetypal Romantic composer who possessed an unbounded imagination and his chamber music with keyboard may be regarded as an extension of his brilliant piano style. His chamber music may be
Read more regarded as an extension of his piano music.
