Gold Medal Winning album in the May 2015 Global Music Awards for a classical music duo!
Robert Schumann’s three sonatas for violin and piano embody the 19th century German Romantic perspective. Entering Schumann’s unique sound world, violinist Nicholas DiEugenio and pianist Chi-Chen Wu draw further inspiration from the builder Rodney Regier’s unique creation of a fortepiano that embodies the ideal characteristics of instruments by Vienna’s greatest early 19th century builders, Conrad Graf and Ignaz Bösendorfer. The release of this disc, the first to feature performances of all three sonatas on a fortepiano, is an important contribution to the appreciation of these expressive and inventive works.
