The two Hungarians not only played music, they were themselves the music – in every nerve – down to their fingertips.

“We can discover a true mirror of Schumann’s emotional life in his music,” writes Tamás Vásáry in regard to the piano works of the composer. But what is the situation with the symphonies? To what extent did the tradition of the genre, the example of his great predecessors (Mozart and Beethoven) and his contemporaries (Mendelssohn, Berlioz) impact Schumann’s fundamentally lyrical creative soul? Has he found his own particular subjective tone in the framework of greater formats and grander apparatuses? Between the two symphonies, we are witness to the meeting of a remarkable talent and a concerto with a remarkable concept: Gergely Devich takes the stage as soloist for the Cello Concerto in A minor.
