This album tackles some of Clara Schumann’s most representative early works, from the Polonaises op. 1 (written when she was 13) to the Sonata in G minor (composed at the age of 20). These pages show the environment in which the young Clara grew up artistically, namely: virtuoso pianism, the influence of Chopin (such as in the Soirées Musicales op.6 ), almost statutory homagea to the Viennese tradition (as in the Souvenir de Vienne op. 9 dedicated to the Empress of Austria) and, equally obligatory, the sonata. Together with the Romances op. 11, this key work marks the passage to a second, more mature phase – magnificent yet tormented – of her life and poetics.
