SERGIO FIORENTINO The Early Recordings 6 - Schumann
APR5586
SCHUMANN
Carnaval Op 9; Kinderszenen Op 15;  Arabeske Op18; Symphonic Etudes Op13

THE ITALIAN PIANIST Sergio Fiorentino excelled in many areas of the repertory, but he enjoyed a particularly close affinity with the music of Schumann. His effortless blend of a seemingly unimpeachable technique, a wonderful ability to sing a line, and a sense of strong but never overbearing characterization made him a natural for Schumann’s highly strung emotionalism. The four works included here, recorded over a mere two days in August 1965, show him equally at home in a work as outwardly modest as the Arabeske, and in the virtuosic Études symphoniques and Carnaval.
