Chamber Music of Clara Schumann

Byron Schenkman

“Schenkman interprets with subtlety… He clearly adores Clara Schumann.”

Brian Schuth, Boston Musical Intelligencer


Chamber Music of Clara Schumann, featuring violinist Jesse Irons, cellist Kate Bennett Wadsworth, and pianist Byron Schenkman, was described as “an hour of unmitigated pleasure” by Brian Clark in Early Music Review (UK). D. James Ross wrote in the same journal that “there is an engaging freshness about these performances, with a particularly evocative sound coming from Byron Schenkman’s 1875 Streicher piano.”

“For devotees of the harpsichord and fans of early music, indeed for any music lover, this is an essential acquisition.”

 Sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti has been praised in Early Music Review (UK) for Schenkman’s “exemplary” playing: “In a very crowded field, this Scarlatti recording sticks out for the intelligence and bravura of the playing and the chance to hear four outstanding period instruments in top condition.”
