Schumann: Fantasy in C Major, Op. 17; Brahms: Sonata No. 2 in F Sharp minor, Op. 2

Schumann and Brahms, contemporaries and lifelong friends, composed some of the most cherished piano music of the Romantic period. Ludwig Olshansky demonstrates mastery over the genre by executing both Schumann's "Fantasia" and Brahms's Sonata No. 2 in F Sharp Minor with sensitivity as well as technical accuracy. William A. Olsen of The New Records called Olshanksy's recording "beautifully played and realized." Liner notes, written by Michael Brozen, include descriptions of the featured compositions as well as quotations from Olshansky reviews.
