 These three sonatas for violin and piano, all of them from the last five years of Schumann’s life, have always been curiously little known and underplayed. While the first sonata is the best known of the three, it is not uncommon to come across musicians who are not familiar with the second and third sonatas, with many assuming that there are only two sonatas. The structures of these sonatas may not be the most readily comprehensible, however the musical inspiration Schumann displays is hauntingly original, rewarding for the performer and listener alike and deserving to be as much a part of the canon as the more frequently performed Brahms sonatas. Acclaimed artists, violinist Jennifer Frautschi and pianist John Blacklow, give compelling performances of these sonatas. Performing together since 1995, they were selected by Carnegie Hall for its Distinctive Debuts series and have performed at world famous venues in Europe as part of the European Concert Hall Organization’s Rising Stars series.


"... I love Frautschi and Blacklow’s meaningful playing and I think readers will agree."
