Schumann: Piano Quartets
Quartetto Klimt

Schumann: Piano Quartet in C minor, WoO 32
Schumann: Piano Quartet in E flat major, Op. 47

This release couples two of Schumann’s substantial chamber music works: the mature E flat Piano Quartet Op. 47 and the youthful C minor Piano Quartet.

Schumann’s E flat Piano Quartet is a masterwork in its genre, on a par with those by Mozart and (later) Brahms. The C minor brother is an outpouring of youthful passion on a grand scale, compensating its lack of structural solidity by ardent impetuosity and boundless energy. Excellent performance by the Quartetto Klimt, 4 young Italians sharing their passion for this still slightly neglected chamber music, recorded in 2009 - Booklet contains liner notes and artist biographies.
