Happy Birthday to the Immortal Robert Schumann

Hélène Grimaud and Albrecht Mayer Play Two Romances

by Anne French

A loving and lovely interpretation of two Romances written in 1849 by the great, immortal Robert Schumann (1810-1856). There are a plethora of recordings of this, his Opus no. 94, transcribed for many different solo instruments. But I thought the Grimaud/Mayer symbiosis was really quite remarkable. We hope you agree.
