Thursday, 29 July 2021 – The anniversary of Robert Schumann’s death

Today, 29 July, is the anniversary of the death of my dearest composer, Robert Schumann. This year marks the 165th anniversary of his death. My work has kept me so busy today, that I didn’t have much time to sit in my study and enjoy the music. Still, I listened to recordings of Schumann performed by my great favourite pianists. “Gesänge der Frühe, op. 133” performed by Mitsuko Uchida, Piano Quartet E-flat major, op. 47 performed by Glenn Gould with the Juilliard Quartet. And now I’m listening to Sergio Fiorentino’s marvelous Schumann album.
