Roman Zaslavsky: Ingenious Opposites Vol. 1 – Robert Schumann & Franz Liszt

Roman Zaslavsky piano

Roman Zaslavsky understands how to contrast the two ingenious opposites Robert Schumann and Franz Liszt side by side, on one recording giving each one his due, thus offering a completely new approach to their music and also to two rather different natures of the Romantic period.
