This new audite release marks the beginning of a planned three-disc series with Jimin Oh-Havenith. Here, the pianist will present her personal perspective on Robert Schumann, whose contribution to romantic piano music is unparalleled, particularly so his series of masterpieces composed between 1830 and 1839. The first Sonata in F sharp minor, Op. 11, and the Fantasie Op. 17 form part of Schumann's exploration of the classical sonata form, especially that of Beethoven and Schubert. Due to their poetic and autobiographical-programmatic charge in combination with a novel, decidedly contrapuntal pianistic virtuosity, they remain among the most demanding piano works of the romantic period, and are also unreservedly loved by performers and listeners. Jimin Oh-Havenith's playing, both powerful and nuanced, beautifully realises the unique richness of this music.
