Schumann: Davidsbündlertänze (Dances of the League of David), Op. 6; Arabesque, Op. 18 - Ray Lev, piano
GSC016DL (MONO) - Schumann: Davidsbündlertänze (Dances of the League of David), Op. 6; Arabesque, Op. 18 - Ray Lev, piano - Davidsbündlertänze is a group of eighteen pieces for solo piano composed by Robert Schumann in 1837. He named them after his imaginary Davidsbündler. The low opus number is misleading: the work was written after Carnaval, Op. 9, and the Symphonic Studies, Op. 13. The pieces are not true dances, but characteristic pieces, musical dialogues about contemporary music between Schumann's characters Florestan and Eusebius. This collection, played by the controversial American pianist Ray Lev, was recorded in 1951 by Concert Hall. The album is filled out with a fine interpretation of the Arabesque, Op. 18. Thanks to John Whitmore for the transcription of the LP.
