Imogen Cooper

Composed by: R. Schumann; C. Schumann

This is the second volume in the new collaboration between Chandos and highly respected British pianist Imogen Cooper. Known as a Schubert expert, she has recently turned to her attention to Robert Schumann. This album represents an implicit dialog between the two Schumanns – husband Robert and wife Clara. Robert Schumann’s Sonata No. 1, one of the romantic piano repertoire’s most emblematic pieces, reveals ‘a much darker side of Schumann at work’ (Cooper). “This is one of the finest solo piano recordings I have heard for some time...” – Int’l Record Review (First volume review)
