Concerto and Concertinos
The successful collaboration between Christian Zacharias and the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne with MDG continues to bear new fruit. Here Schumann's rarely performed concertinos complement his famous Piano Concerto in masterful, finely nuanced, and intelligent interpretations.

Clara's Choice
Schumann's piano concerto was also originally a concertino. Clara Schumann did not incorporate it into her repertoire with enthusiasm until her husband had made a "respectable concerto" out of it.

Robert the Innovator
The compositions on this recording show us Schumann as a adventurer off the beaten formal paths: Concerto Allegro with Introduction, Introduction and Allegro appassionato: "I cannot simply write a concerto for the virtuoso; I have to come up with something else." And Schumann invited the soloist to journey with him into absolutely uncharted territory.

One-Man Show
Christian Zacharias doubtless numbers among the world-elite pianists. MDG is presenting him here in three roles, as soloist, chamber musician, and conductor.
