Schumann Lebensreise


Artur Pizarro

Robert Schumann’s Bunte Blätter (‘Colourful Leaves’), encompassing works composed between about 1836 and 1849, is unique in Schumann’s output: under the umbrella of the collection as a whole there are two, smaller collections plus six individual pieces, each a finely-cut gem that sparkles in the hands of Artur Pizarro. Schumann’s Sonata No. 1 in F-sharp minor, Op. 11, is a work of precocious coherence in which innovations abound, and the programme also includes the Allegro, Op. 8, a powerful movement that unfolds in the manner of a fantasia.

Reviews

“Pizarro’s playing comes across as authentic, without looking for effects, with a bright touch full of colour, sometimes soft as velvet, but muscular and virtuoso if necessary… a more modern, more professional school of piano playing in which technique and virtuosity are unconditionally at the service of the composer’s intentions. With Pizarro, Schumann gets it all. He convincingly portrays a composer who is not inferior to Beethoven, but deserves a place alongside his great predecessor.”
Klassiek Centraal - Erik Langeveld / December 2020

“After a finely nuanced excursion through the Bunte Blätter, to which he gives coherence and consistency, he arrives at the First Piano Sonata … Pizarro plays it with a mixture of spontaneity … and structural superiority, which fully preserves the pure musicality of this beautiful music”.
Pizzicato - Remy Franck / November 2020
