Reflection features Grimaud performing one of the most popular piano concertos of all time - Robert Schumann's romantic Piano Concerto in A minor Op. 54 - with Esa-Pekka Salonen leading the Staatskapelle Dresden. The disc was recorded on what would have been the Schumann's 165th wedding anniversary.
Along with the famous Brahms Rhapsodies op. 79, Nos. 1 & 2, other tracks include the Brahms Sonata for Cello and Piano op. 38 with Truls Mark, the Norwegian cellist and Grimaud's long-time chamber music partner. The album also marks Grimaud's debut collaboration with mezzo-soprano Annie Sofie von Otter, who joins her songs by Clara Schumann.
