Schumann: Concertos; Concert Pieces (CD)

A unique collection, bringing together Schumann's Concertos and concertante works, including the first international release of Ingrid Haebler's recording of the Piano Concerto and Barenboim's of the Konzertstuck for Four Horns. The unjustly neglected Concert Pieces, Opp. 92 & 134 are given glorious readings by Ashkenazy and both the Cello and Violin Concertos receive admirable performances from Lynn Harrell and Joshua Bell, respectively.
