Description
A rebellious and tempestuous composer even by Romantic era standards, Robert Schumann followed the muse when he wrote for the piano, resulting in some of his most beautiful, idiosyncratic works. A prizewinner at the 2007 Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels, Francesco Piemontesi performs the Sonata no. 1 in F-sharp Minor, op. 11; Sonata no. 2 in G Minor, op. 22; and Sonata no. 3 in F Minor, op. 14—nicknamed the "concerto without an orchestra" because of its massive sound. Dedicated to Franz Liszt, the Fantasy in C Major, op. 17, is also included on this 2010 recording.

"Last year I discovered a recording of Schumann's Piano Sonata no. 3 in F minor, a sprawling and spidery work that can fall apart even under the nimblest fingers. Not this time. Francesco Piemontesi, a young Swiss–Italian pianist, totally nails it.... This is where Piemontesi, on the Claves label, makes you catch your breath. Not even [Vladimir] Horowitz—one of very few great names to have tackled the Third Sonata—achieves such pinprick delicacy."—The Spectator (UK)
