Schumann – Concertstuck, Opus 86 for Four Horns and Piano
Schumann, Robert – Concertstück, Opus 86 for Four Horns and Piano.
Robert Schumann's Concertstück, Opus 86 for Four Horns in F is a work of incredible genius, in that it combines virtuosity, energy, expression, lyricism and harmonic invention. Written during Schumann's most prolific period in 1849, it is a marvelous showpiece for the horn quartet and arguably has not ever been surpassed for its sheer excitement. Each performer needs to be at the top of her/his game, but the rewards are well worth the effort.
The 3-movement work of almost 20 minutes in length is a joy to perform and to listen to.
Recommended for advanced performers.
