With "Reflection" Helene Grimaud sheds musical light on one of the most infamous love triangles in musical history. The album reflects the close personal and musical relationship between Robert Schumann, his wife Clara, and their friend Johannes Brahms. Just as in Grimaud's recent Chopin-Rachmaninov recording, this new album explores the themes of love and transfiguration through music.

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.

Selections:
Robert Schumann (1810-1856)

1-3. Concerto for Piano and Orchestra in A minor, Op. 54

Clara Schumann (1819-1896)
4-5. Two Lieder to poems from Friedrich Ruckert's Liebesfruhling
6. Am Strande

Johannes Brahms (1833-1897)
7-9. Sonata for Piano and Violoncello no. 1 in E minor, op. 38
10-11. Two Rhapsodies for Piano Op. 79
