Album Description Download Full CD Booklet

Playing and recording the Schumann Sonatas is one of my most personal projects to date. Schumann's music has always compelled me as a musician and a listener for as long as I can remember. Schumann's music is the most human with its viscerally haunting, obsessive, tender, and vulnerable extremes. One can connect a lifetime of experiences (birth, love, hate, death) into every phrase of his music. These disparate experiences are tied together into one life (one phrase, one movement, one sonata) in Schumann's music. A single phrase is like a poignant memory that returns and with each visit is reborn more vividly, more passionately, more tenderly than before. Jennifer Koh

This recording is dedicated to the memory of Edward Aldwell. His warmth, generosity and wit are missed by all who knew him. His integrity and intelligence as a musician will always inspire us.
