Musician's or Publisher's Notes
Playing and recording the Schumann Sonatas is one of my most
personal projects to date. Schumann's music has always compelled me as a
musician and a listener for as long as I can remember. Schumann's music is the
most human with its viscerally haunting, obsessive, tender, and vulnerable
extremes. One can connect a lifetime of experiences (birth, love, hate, death)
into every phrase of his music. These disparate experiences are tied together
into one life (one phrase, one movement, one sonata) in Schumann's music. A
single phrase is like a poignant memory that returns and with each visit is
reborn more vividly, more passionately, more tenderly than before.
