Two of Schumann’s greatest cycles for solo piano are matched to twentieth-century works to which have deep connections. Says Biss: “While the titles of many of Schumann and Janácek’s individual movements are often strikingly similar, the real link is in the mercurial nature of their music. The Berg clearly responds to, and here, “foreshadows” Schumann’s most personal and touching work for the piano.”
