Patrick Messina and Fabrizio Chiovetta’s “Schumann: Music for Clarinet” out this Friday
The pieces performed on this disc plunge the listener into the creative years of Robert Schumann with Messina and Chiovetta complementing these works with transcriptions for the lyrical and automnal clarinet. The duo’s recording also includes four works by Clara Schumann, pieces drawing inspiration from the same sources as her husband’s.
Pierre Lenert lends his expressive viola playing to Schumann: Music for Clarinet as well, for the performances of Märchenerzählungen, Op. 132 and In der Nacht, Op. 74 Nr. 4 in trio.
The album is available 28 April 2017 on Aparté.
