Schumann: Kreisleriana, Op. 16; Brahms: 3 Intermezzi from Op. 119

Schumann: Kreisleriana, Op. 16; Brahms: 3 Intermezzi from Op. 119

Juilliard-trained classical pianist Ludwig Olshansky performs two solo piano pieces: Robert Schumann’s “Kreisleriana, Op. 16,” and Johannes Brahms’ “Intermezzi, Op. 119, No. 1, 2, 3.” The link between the two pieces is that they were dedicated to pianist Clara Wieck Schumann. “Kreisleriana” was written over a period of four days following Clara’s acceptance of Schumann’s marriage proposal. Written when he was 60, Brahms’ “Intermezzo No. 1,” a melancholy composition, was dedicated to Schumann’s widow. The liner notes provide the back story about the friendship between the Schumanns and Brahms.
