Schumann. Novelletten, Nachtstucke. Driver
Catalog: CDA 67983
Danny Driver (piano)
Composed by: Schumann: Novelletten Op.21, Nachtstücke Op.23
On this album Danny Driver brings his impeccable pianism, consummate style and imagination to Schumann’s Novelletten and Nachtstücke, less wellknown sets from his extraordinary output for the piano. Schumann wrote Nachtstücke upon the death of his brother, and would have entitled it Corpse Fantasia were it not for Clara's intervention. The eight pieces of the Novelletten form what is at once the largest and the least known among Schumann's major piano cycles.
