Three works on this programme place their focus on Robert Schumann. In his Märchenerzählungen (Fairy tales) he chose a combination of instruments already explored in Mozart’s “Kegelstatt” Trio: clarinet, viola and piano. The dark hue of these instruments led him to adopt a romanticised folk inflection. Johannes Brahms chose the last melody that Schumann committed to paper – his ‘final thought’ – as the theme of ten variations for piano four-hands. And Kurtág adopted the scoring of the Märchenerzählungen in order to breathe new life into Schumann’s imaginary characters with gossamer webs of sound. If the piano evolved in the 19th century into a full-voiced instrument resembling a symphony orchestra, Bartók, in his sonata, went one step further: he placed the pianists on a par with the percussionists, creating a thrilling masterpiece of overwhelming vigour.
