Schumann: Chamber Music
Schumann: Märchenerzählungen (Fairy Tale Pictures), Op 132 (15:58)
Efim Boico, violin; Nicolò Eugelmi, viola; Xiayin Wang, piano
Between 1841 and 1843, Schumann wrote some of his greatest chamber works, among them the Piano Quartet and the Piano Quintet, both in E flat major. The four Märchenerzählungen are included with these masterpieces. Founded in Chicago in 1946, and based at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee since 1963, the Fine Arts Quartet is one of the elite few to have recorded and toured internationally for over half a century.
