This Album tackles some of Clara Schumann's most representative early works, from the Polonaises op. 1 (written when she was 13) to the Sonata in G minor (composed at the age of 20). These pages show the environment in which the young Clara grows artistically, namely pianism of "virtuosity", the influence of Chopin (the Soirées Musicales op.6), the almost statutory homage to the Viennese tradition (the Souvenir de Vienne op. 9 dedicated to the Empress of Austria) and, equally obligatory, the sonata that, together with the Romances op. 11, marks the passage to a second, more mature phase - magnificent yet tormented - of her life and poetics.
