A decade after his highly acclaimed “In Concert” album, master pianist András Schiff continues his documentation of Robert Schumann’s music in a set recorded at Neumarkt’s Reitstadl. The repertoire includes Papillons op. 2, Klaviersonate fis-moll op. 11, Kinderszenen op. 15, Fantasie C-Dur op. 17, Waldszenen op. 82, Thema mit Variationen (Geistervariationen). The Fantasy in C Major is heard with alternate endings: as well as the official published version, Schiff includes a preliminary version he finds more musically convincing. András Schiff gives his thoughts on the matter in a very interesting note in the CD booklet which also gives background information by Wolf-Dieter Seiffert on each of the compositions.

András Schiff was born in Budapest in 1953 and studied at the city’s Ferenc Liszt Academy with Pal Kadosa, György Kurtág and Ferenc Rados.

From 1989 until 1998 he was artistic director of the annual Mondsee chamber music festival in Austria and in 1995, together with oboist and composer Heinz Holliger, he founded the Ittinger...
