Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    73:53
Following his recent acclaimed recordings of Haydn and Beethoven Sonatas, Jean-Efflam Bavouzet turns from the classical to the romantic era, and the works of Schumann. The programme is built around the Grande Sonate (No. 3). This impressive, large-scale work was originally composed in 1834, revised in 1853, and eventually premiered (six years after the composer’s death) by Schumann’s young protégé Johannes Brahms.

Jean-Efflam first discovered the work through a recording by Vladimir Horowitz in the 1980s, and got to play the work to, and discuss it with, Horowitz in Paris in 1985. In two passages in the first movement, like Horowitz before him, Jean-Efflam combines elements from both the original and revised versions of the work on this recording.

He has chosen to complement the sonata with another early work – the Faschingsschwank aus Wien – and then the much later Drei Fantasiestücke. He closes with the Gesänge der Frühe which was among the last compositions that Schumann wrote before his attempted suicide and confinement to a mental asylum in February 1854.

As he does in all his albums, Jean-Efflam Bavouzet contributes an insightful personal performer’s note to the booklet.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
