This new recording presents two of Schumann's best and most famous chamber music works.

Excellent performances by one of the leading Dutch string quartets, the Daniel Quartet, joined in the Piano Quintet by Klara Wurtz, whose Schumann recordings for Brilliant Classics have met with great critical acclaim.

Although perhaps better known for his Lieder and piano music, both of the works heard on this new recording by the Daniel Quartet are from Robert Schumann's significant oeuvre of chamber music.

Schumann was well acquainted with examples of the genre by Haydn, Mozart and Mendelssohn, and passionate studies of Beethoven's quartets preceded his own works. He adapted elements from these older compositions into his new music, and easily transposed his writing for full orchestra to the smaller ensemble. Schumann's song-like melodies are brought to life in this lively new
release, with the exuberant character of the music palpable in the Daniel Quartet's performance. Schumann himself described the String Quartet in A major as one of the best things he had ever written, and the Piano Quintet in E flat major is similarly considered one of Schumann's best compositions. The work was dedicated to his beloved wife Clara, and she played in its premiere in 1843.

The Daniel Quartet is renowned for its performances of chamber music at major venues in the USA and across Europe. For the Piano Quintet, they are joined by Hungarian pianist Klara Wurtz . one of Brilliant Classicsf most prolific artists - whose recent recording of Beethoven violin sonatas received five-star reviews in Diapason and Fanfare.
