The Songs of Robert Schumann: Vol. 9

Ann Murray, Felicity Lott, Graham Johnson

This ninth volume in the Hyperion Schumann Edition brings us to music Schumann wrote for children, and what a delight it proves to be. The Op 79 Liederalbum für die Jugend-twenty-nine songs and duets composed in 1849-leads us on a journey through Schumann’s affinity with the mind and imagination of the musical child, a journey which here is sensitively puntuated by fifteen items from the Op 68 piano collection Klavieralbum für die Jugend. The complementary effect of the two makes for a satisfying, and generously filled, CD.

As ever, the disc is accompanied by a weighty essay on the music and its background from Graham Johnson.
