Robert Schumann, Kreisleriana, Kinderszenen

Dora Deliyska devotes this recording to the masterpieces by Robert Schumann. This release features Kreisleriana op. 16 – character pieces addressed to Schumann’s later wife and great love Clara Wieck – , the Kinderszenen op. 15 and two of the Six Studies after Caprices by Paganini op. 3. Robert Schumann’s own spiritual world becomes most evident in his piano works. The Pianist Dora Deliyska talks about her new CD: ‘His emotions are strong and heartfelt, but by no means meditative. He sometimes presents us with several ideas at the same time, without leaving us time to experience everything at the same moment. Only when the music is over do you sense the influence and the inner change his music has provoked. With Schumann, the final note is the key opening the door to inner expression. You only have to be open and prepared to allow this overwhelming wave of emotions to act on you.’
