Martin Helmchen, piano
Helmchen has built an enviable reputation particularly in the classical and romantic repertoire. Schumann’s Novelletten form the largest and the least known among Schumann’s major piano cycles with the music clearly written in an exultant mood. In the second half we hear Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations, a startlingly original masterpiece filled with power, wit and virtuosity.
