Description
Swiss–French pianist Cédric Pescia recorded this final grouping of Robert Schumann's complete piano works on a 1901 New York Steinway, the rich sound of which is subtly and naturally suited to these fascinating pieces. There is a gap of 20 years between the early Impromptus (op. 5) and the Gesange der Frühe ("Songs of Dawn," op. 133)—a piece that Schumann completed just before he was incapacitated by mental illness—and yet certain themes recur: the taste for miniature, childhood nostalgia, the epic surges, and the constant duality of feelings.

"In Vol. 5 [Pescia] admirably blends the familiar and unfamiliar…. He rightly makes Pater's definition of Romanticism—'the addition of strangeness to beauty'—central to his view, and in the wilder moments of the Novelletten you are made especially aware of a composer on the edge, ready in his own words 'to sing myself to death.'... Op. 126 is alive with fleeting memories of Schumann's beloved Bach."—Gramophone
