SONATA ARTIST SCHUMANN On this recording, conductor and violinist Arvid Engegård and pianist Nils Anders Mortensen explore two monumental works for violin and piano: Robert Schumann’s sonatas op. 105 and 121. Both works were composed in the autumn of 1851, a short time before the full onset of Schumann’s mental illness, and although he remains within the context of familiar techniques, these sonatas display innovative qualities that listeners of the day found rather demanding. Here Schumann revitalises the sonata form by expanding and challenging the harmonic and structural possibilities inherent in the form, and, in doing so, he places himself alongside the greatest composers of the Classical period. The sonatas are Romantic works with enormous energy, while, at the same time, they can be experienced as smoulderingly introspective and charged with subdued intensity. In a matter of moments, the moods change from dark to light and humorous. «Consistently inspired, vibrant and fervent performances, full of invention and vitality. A delightful chamber music recording!» Remy Franck – Pizzicato, 17.02.17 review_LWC1110_pizzicato.pdf
