The performances heard on this recording by the superstar duo of violinist Itzhak Perlman and pianist Martha Argerich do not exactly form a discrete group: the first work, Schumann's Violin Sonata No. 1 in A minor, Op. 105, was recorded live in 1998, while the rest consists of 2016 studio recordings. The 1998 performance, however, was part of a concert in Saratoga Springs, New York, that provided the stimulus for the joint recording. The Schumann sonata performance was not released at that time, and the rest of the program expands on the music it presents. It's nice to have the Schumann, which has a good deal of tension and energy. As for the rest, it's hard to point to a clear decline in the skills of either of the septuagenarian performers.

Ten years ago, the great tenor Peter Schreier took his stage farewell, Eighty years ago he was born in Meissen. He remains considered one of the greatest lyric tenors in the German-speaking world – with a repertoire ranging from the great Opera roles to oratorio and Lied. One of the gems of his discography is his recording of Schumann’s Lied cycles “Dichterliebe” and “Liederkreis” from 1991, accompanied by Christoph Eschenbach on the piano, now re-released for Schreier’s 80th birthday on 29 July, 2015.

This third recording by Imogen Cooper on Chandos features some of Robert Schumann’s most characteristic and complex works for solo piano. Cooper is one of those artists who are reaching a glorious maturity in middle age; she seems to follow in the steps of her teacher Alfred Brendel, her prodigious virtuosity coexisting with lyrical and emotional wisdom. This album includes the Davidsbündlertänze which she describes as a ‘work of stirring beauty and humour that make it one of the great romantic masterpieces for the piano’. It also illustrates the journey between two sets of variations: Schumann’s first published and last composed piano pieces. While the ‘Abegg’ is ‘virtuosic, extroverted, challenging to play, and charming’, the Geistervariationen are ‘introverted and sparse, with a deep but elusive emotion’. Finally, in the two Novelletten Imogen Cooper reveals what she calls the ‘hidden narrative filaments to be discovered’ in Schumann’s music; this requires ‘a skill which is very necessary in the interpretation of scores that frequently appear disjointed and illogical’.

Enthralling Music by Karl Goldmark. Karl Goldmark numbers among those composers whose former fame and glory later regrettably faded. Nevertheless, Goldmark enjoyed a highly successful career from the son of a poor Jewish cantor in the Hungarian countryside, initially without school instruction, to a professor of composition and composer in Vienna.

Barbara Bonney's recital of the Schumanns' songs is prefaced, in the booklet-note, with a little feminist homily from the singer defending the reputation of Clara as woman and artist. Clara hardly needs that kind of defence nowadays, witness recent CDs by Skovhus and Stutzmann, plus several others not reviewed in these pages; her songs are far from patronized, let alone neglected. Yet, for all the advocacy of these singers, her inspiration remains for me intermittent, though thoroughly conventional songs are occasionally leavened by notably individual ones, such as, here, her very last and unpublished song, Loreley, which vividly conjures up that dangerous creature, particu lady in the hectic piano part, evocatively played by Ashkenazy. Indeed it seems that Heine most inspired her, as "Sic liebten sich beide" from her Op. 13 provoked a setting of economically intense meaning, to which Bonney finely responds.

Jon Nakamatsu is ideally suited to Schumann: he has the staggering technique expected from a Van Cliburn winner but also poetry and delicacy are uppermost in his playing. His nine recordings for harmonia mundi USA range from Chopin and Brahms, via Rachmaninov to Gershwin, and most recently the Brahms Piano Quintet with the Tokyos. His next recording will be of Brahms, Beethoven and Weber with Clive Greensmith, formerly of the Tokyo String Quartet and Jon Manasse on clarinet.

Robert Schumanncomposed the Op. 47 Piano Quartet in E flat majorin his so-called chamber music year of 1842, immediately after finishing the famous piano quintet in the same key. Despite the proximity in time and tonality, there are clear differences between the two works: the quintet tends more towards a concertantedialogue between the piano and string quartet while the quartet favours equality between the four parts even if the cello has something of a leading role among the strings.
