Notes and Editorial Reviews

Robert Schumann’s Studien and Konzert-Etüden transform Paganini’s violin Caprices into stunningly virtuoso pieces for piano. Containing the hidden ‘voice’ of his beloved Clara, the Humoreske, Op 20 is filled with contrasts Schumann expressed as “composing and writing and laughing and crying, all at the same time”. Ukrainian pianist Mariya Kim has gained global recognition through prizes including the Horowitz, Paderewski and China Shenzhen International Piano Competitions and the Seoul and José Iturbi International Music Competitions. Her achievements have also brought her a Yamaha Foundation Award. - Naxos Robert Schumann’s Studien and Konzert-Etüden transform Paganini’s violin Caprices into stunningly virtuoso pieces for piano.
