Music In The Round: Schumann: Ensemble 360

Schumann Fantasiestücke Op.73 for double bass and piano
Chopin Nocturne in D flat Op.27 No.2 for piano
Prokofiev Sonata for Flute and Piano in D Op.94

Schumann’s well-loved Fantasiestücke is played on many different instruments, and here is transformed on the double bass. Each movement has its own character and mood: nostalgia, tender and expressive; relaxation, light and playful; vigour, fiery and passionate.

The first of his nocturnes to be published as a pair, Chopin’s popular Op.27 complement each other beautifully: the feverish intensity of the first is contrasted by the serene lyricism of the second, heard here.

Prokofiev’s luminous Sonata for Flute and Piano radiates with optimism and joy, and it is hard to believe it was written during the years that the composer was evacuated from his home country during World War II. It opened to astonishing success in Moscow, its playful elegance and sparkling lines delighting audiences.
