Discovering Masterpieces of Classical Music - Schumann

Robert Schumann’s famous piano concerto is not a traditional virtuoso showpiece but a cooperative venture between the soloist and the orchestra. This new relationship transported the piano concerto into the realm of symphonic music. The German musicologist Wulf Konold explains the special features of the composition using concert footage of the Argentinean piano virtuoso Martha Argerich.
