Long popular with audiences and performers alike, the Schumann concerto is felt by many to be one of the greatest concerted piano works. In the words of noted authority Maurice Hinson, Schumann “succeeded in a magnificent manner by composing what is probably the most beautiful of Romantic concertos....This flawless masterpiece is one of the most outstanding and romantically inspired concertos in the repertoire.” Integrating the piano and orchestra in an unprecedented manner, it embodies the melodic grace and fine tonal texture so characteristic of one of the great composers of all time.
