      Schumann: Papillons, Op 2 (15:02)

      Jon Nakamatsu, piano

      The fantastical world of Robert Schumann’s musical imagination provides the theme for this recording by pianist Jon Nakamatsu. It ranges from the tempestuous virtuosity of the Piano Sonata No 2 to the glittering masquerade depicted in Carnaval to the colorful miniatures of Papillons. Schumann’s compositions lie at the very heart of the Romantic piano repertoire. Since winning the Gold Medal at the Tenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Nakamatsu has enjoyed a busy concert career and has made several highly acclaimed recordings for Harmonia Mundi.
