Piano Quintet Eb Major Op. 44 by : Robert Schumann : Ernst Herttrich

The composition cost him his sleep. In October 1842; when Schumann had finished his piano quintet in a short period of time; he was physically and emotionally drained. The work in no way reflects this; quite the contrary. “Full of strength and freshness” said Clara Schumann of the new composition; as well as “extremely brilliant and effective.” Even Richard Wagner added his voice to the great wave of admiration. Thus op. 44 soon became one of Schumann's most successful compositions; which today is still a jewel in chamber music literature. If the quartet reminds one of a piano concerto with orchestra in string quartet format at times; this is explained by the fact that it was intended for Clara's repertoire. The work was also dedicated to this brilliant pianist.
