From the booklet: “In 1851, one of his last creative years (he had relocated to Düsseldorf to become the new local Musikdirector), Schumann composed the Trio with piano n.3 in G minor, the two Sonatas for violin and piano op.105 and op.121 and the Märchenbilder for viola and piano, op.113. When not affected by his nervous troubles, the composer allowed a creative fervour to permeate him, and often went back, among other things, to his favourite style, that of chamber music. Putting to good use the evocative timbre of the violas, the Märchenbilder (Fairy-tale pictures) recall Schumann’s own evocative visions, to be seen in much of the music he wrote for pianos (with or without explicative titles). ” by Lorenzo Tozzi TRACKLIST
