‘A cry from my heart to yours’ was how Robert Schumann described his Piano Sonata No 1 to his beloved Clara Wieck. At the time he finished it, she was only sixteen years old; he was twenty-five. Music was their principal means of communication, and every note of this work is full of passion and inventiveness. The Oratorio di San Francesco di Nobili in Perugia is a very intimate venue—a jewel of a place, providing the backdrop for an unforgettable evening of great piano music.
There will be no interval.
