As a very special companion disc to the recently released haenssler CLASSIC recording of Schumann’s complete works for Violin and orchestra, we are proud to present an integral recording of the composer’s works for PIANO and orchestra – including a World Premiere!

For the first time, Schumann’s own orchestration of his Abegg Variations, Opus 1, which the composer wrote under the inspiration of Chopin’s Variations on "La ci darem la mano". Also included, of course, is the famous Piano Concerto in A minor, the Konzertsatz in D minor, originally conceived as the first movement of an unfinished piano concerto as well as to later concert works that Schumann wrote later in his life. The program on this disc has been organized chronologically. Thus Robert Schumann’s complete concertante works for piano can be experienced as a documentary process of the composer’s development.

Florian Uhlig is not only young a pianist of international stature, but also one who knows Schumann's oeuvre very well. He is currently engaged in recording Schumann’s complete works for solo piano – the first volume of which is already available. When complete, Uhlig’s cycle will bring to light many forgotten and never-before-recorded masterworks.
