Editorial Reviews

The courtship and marriage of Robert Schumann and Clara Wieck is one of the great love stories in the history of music. Their relationship, embodying all the requisite elements of Romantic fiction, has taken on mythic proportions through its frequent depiction in novels and movies

Another fascinating issue from Ksenia Nosikova, whose delectable playing never fails to engage, elucidate and delight.

This time, Schumann.

And what Schumann! With every ounce of wherewithal she possesses, Nosikova creates an incredible Romantic smorgasbord, and we feast on the emerging hidden voices, vibrating colors, tantalizing tragic elements, and luscious emotional palette so much the very recipe for Schumann. And she never falters to become one with the composer, even to the point of reconfiguring the order of movements comprising the Op. 14 (1836/rev. 1853), and returning an excised Scherzo (from the latest Henle edition), because this is what Schumann submitted originally for publication. Her artistic decision is a brave, daring and curious departure from the norm, but its impact most certainly will elicit a newfound admiration for this sweeping work. And it may even raise some eyebrows. Good for her! Ah, the wonder of music.

Gorgeous as well is the heartfelt Op. 11 (1835), with its sublime second movement "Aria," dedicated to Clara. Nosikova is in her element here, contrasting the sonata's dreamy lyricism with its restless forward drive. A stunning performance.

Inserted between sonatas are two delightful morsels composed by Clara. Again, Nosikova captivates by playing the lovely "Notturno" in F, Op. 6, No. 2 against the agitated "Scene Fantastique," Op. 5, No. 4.

The warm and intimate piano image engineered by Tim Martyn is easily among the best available.

A scrumptious feast, indeed!
