Long popular with audiences and performers alike, the Schumann concerto is felt by many to be one of the greatest concerted piano works. In the words of noted authority Maurice Hinson, Schumann "succeeded in a magnificent manner by composing what is probably the most beautiful of Romantic concertos....This flawless masterpiece is one of the most outstanding and romantically inspired concertos in the repertoire." Integrating the piano and orchestra in an unprecedented manner, it embodies the melodic grace and fine tonal texture so characteristic of one of the great composers of all time.

Includes 96-page printed music book, newly engraved and printed on beautiful acid-free ivory paper; and a compact disc containing a complete version with soloist, followed by a second version in full stereo of the orchestral accompaniment, minus the soloist; plus a second compact disc containing the full-speed complete version followed by a special -20% slow-tempo version of the accompaniments for practice purposes.

    Beautiful piece of music that isn't concert level but still advanced enough for those seeking to challenge themselves after years of playing. I love having the accompaniment CD's.
