The piano was an essential tool for Robert Schumann, both in his work as a composer and in his theoretical reflections. The continuing technical improvement of the instrument, e. g. through the expansion of its tonal and dynamic range, enhanced the available means of expression, and Schumann knew how to use them in practice and in theory. His composition Carnaval illustrates his skill particularly well: In spite of the strict conceptual approach, i. e. the use of notes as letters (described by Giacomo Fornari in the booklet), the music in these pieces on the subject of the carnival appears colorful, lively and relaxed. In his interpretation Davide Cabassi demonstrates the rare ability to perfectly link and refine these two levels.
In the second composition, the Piano Concerto, Cabassi excels not only as a soloist but also in sensitive and competent ensemble playing with the Haydn Orchestra of Bolzano and Trento under Maestro Gustav Kuhnís direction. So these two well-known works by Robert Schumann reveal the secret that good music needs both: heart and reason.
