Description

Jörg Demus died a few weeks ago at the age of ninety. MDG commemorates this great pianist with a new release of the Fantasiestücke op. 12 and Humoreske op. 20 by Robert Schumann, to whose music Demus felt drawn throughout his life. Performed on a Viennese pianoforte by Conrad Graf and recorded with the finest digital technology even more than thirty years ago, this program documents his tireless advocacy of historical keyboard instruments. Conrad Graf himself had given Clara and Robert Schumann a comparable instrument as a wedding present. Its special appeal comes from the moderator, a lever creating an elfin pianissimo, and the harp stop, which, as on the harpsichord, generates a pizzicato effect. Along with the pearly articulation typical of the pianoforte, these effects are a perfect match for Schumanns romantic pieces.
