 Martin Helmchen Soloist


" ... I am affected by everything that is happening in the world, politics, literature, people – in my own way, I think about everything, which then bursts to the surface through music, trying to find a way out. That is why so many of my compositions are so difficult to understand – because they are linked to distant interests – and often also striking; for all that is strange grabs my attention, and I then have to express it again in music." Thus Robert Schumann wrote to his fiancée Clara Wieck in 1838. Until 1839, the piano was Schumann’s favourite medium. As he was wont to say: "What people cannot give me, music can; and the piano expresses all the higher emotions that I cannot express."   Robert Schumann

 "...With bonus SACD quality sound, PentaTone has done it again. This one’s a keeper."

"...there’s much here to admire, not least the discreet but illuminating textural translucency."

Stéphane Friédérich - Classica magazine - April 2013


"This is really a stimulating, thoughtfully-planned Schumann program, featuring one of the composer’s greatest pieces of absolute music for the piano, his last important collection of character pieces, and maybe the most flat-out gorgeous piece of music he ever wrote... PentaTone’s SACD recording is equally wonderful: immediate, truthful, immersive in the best surround-sound manner. This one will certainly be on my favorite recordings list for 2013."    *****
