Felicity Lott, Ann Murray and Graham Johnson tap straight into Schumann's tender side on this beautiful recording of his song and piano works

This disc features Schumann’s songs and piano pieces ‘for the young’, sensitively interspersed and affectionately performed. There’s nothing childish about the music: most of it is Schumann at his most touching (he was a devoted father). Lott, Murray and Johnson tap straight into that tender warmth and intimacy – and there’s the perpetual sense that these performers are close friends who love making music together.
