Stephen Hough is widely regarded as one of the most important and distinctive pianists of his generation. His artistry proves ideal for the three works by Robert Schumann on this album: Arabeske, Kreisleriana, and Fantasie. The emotional sweep of these marvelous pieces, reflecting the vicissitudes of Schumann’s complex personal life at the time, calls for a pianist wholly responsive to their fervent Romanticism.
