Piano Works (Incls Carnaval, Op. 9, Kreisleriana, Op. 16 & Allegro in B minor Op. 8)
Alicia de Larrocha (piano)

[ Decca Australian Eloquence / 2 CD ]

Release Date: Friday 11 May 2007

This is Romantic piano music par excellence, complete with codes and ciphers from Robert to his beloved Clara, and Larrocha's playing has both tenderness and sweeping passion.

Alicia de Larrocha was, for long, an exclusive Decca artist, and besides making seminal recordings of Spanish repertoire, at which she excelled, she was also a Bach, Mozart, Schubert and Schumann player par excellence. She recorded Schumann's Carnaval twice for Decca and it's her earlier (1978) analogue version we release here. Together with Kreisleriana and the eighth Novelette - both recorded in 1971 - this is its first release on CD. This is Romantic piano music par excellence, complete with codes and ciphers from Robert to his beloved Clara, and Larrocha's playing has both tenderness and sweeping passion.
