Robert Schumann, Piano Concerto in A minor
Discovering Masterpieces of Classical Music

Experience and enjoy in a completely new way the great works of classical music, from the Baroque to the modern period, thanks to a series of 20 audio-visual concert guides, Discovering Masterpieces of Classical Music

Robert Schumann’s famous Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 54, 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.
