Info for For Clara: Works by Schumann & Brahms (Extended Edition)

On her 2023 album, pianist Hélène Grimaud explores the rich universe of German Romanticism, combining Robert Schumann's Kreisleriana op. 16 with Brahms' Intermezzi op. 117 and Lieder und Gesängen op. 32. Grimaud has known Schumann's Kreisleriana for most of her life.

"You can spend a lifetime with a piece like this and always discover something new," the pianist says. Her special relationship with the German Romantics is evident on her album For Clara, which focuses not only on the pianist's relationship with the music of Robert Schumann and his protégé Brahms, but in particular on the two composers' connection to Clara Schumann.

Grimaud recorded Brahms' Songs and Cantos op. 32. with baritone Konstantin Krimmel, who was already her musical partner on the album Silent Songs, about which BBC Music Magazine wrote: "Konstantin Krimmel and Hélène Grimaud deserve the highest praise for their confident and unaffected performance of this beautiful, dreamlike music." Together, Grimaud and Krimmel movingly convey the themes of love, loss, devotion, and disillusionment, expressed in both words and music.

"Piano specialists may regard the addition of a baritone voice on this album as an intrusion, but actually this performance of Brahms's Lieder und Gesänge is what makes it special...Krimmel’s light and flexible baritone is well suited to the nine songs in question, in that he brings out the subtlety of the thoughts and images…Grimaud herself is very much on form." (BBC Music MagazineNovember)

"Together, Krimmel and Grimaud create exquisitely characterised vignettes, touching on love, abandonment, devotion and disillusion, perfectly proportioned and keenly expressive...This is musicmaking on a very high level." (Gramophone Magazine)
