Editor's info:
For Schumann, Bach was the supreme benchmark. He saw in his great predecessor not merely a genius of the past, but a vital source for his art., and sought both inspiration and psychological stability in Bach's music. Schumann paid tribute to his mentor in many different ways: writing chorales and fugues like Bach, borrowing his themes, or playing on the four notes which form his name, B-A-C-H. This programme [being considered for BBC Music Magazine Choice], recorded on an Érard piano with an ideal timbre, is played by a passionate admirer of these two masters of the keyboard. Andreas Staier studied the piano and the harpsichord in Hanover and Amsterdam.As harpsichordist of the ensemble Musica Antiqua Köln, between 1983 and 1986, he undertook a series of international concert tours that took him all over the world. Since 1986 Andreas Staier has pursued a career as a freelance soloist and has earned an outstanding reputation as both harpsichordist and fortepianist. In the field of chamber music he has had long and fruitful partnerships with such internationally renowned artists as Christoph Prégardien, Fabio Biondi and René Jacobs. He regularly appears as a soloist in concerto repertoire with ensembles including Concerto Köln, the Freiburger Barockorchester, the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, and the Orchestre des Champs Elysées.Andreas Staier has made numerous CD recordings and many of which have been distinguished by international awards.

BBC Music Magazine * * * * *
Andreas Staier's thoughtful recital explores Schumann's passion for Bach… These performances - on an 1837 Érard of the kind Clara Schumann favoured - are revelatory, counterpointed by Staier's absorbing booklet notes. …many will still prefer the modern piano, the refinement and sentiment of, say, Kempff. For an 'authentic' performance close to Schumann's conception, however, Staier offers not just an alternative view but a highly convincing one.

Hi-Fi News
Staier interprets with real empathy for Schumann’s writing and the charming Erard is given lifelike reproduction.

The Independent
Andreas Staier's first disc of Schumann is a collaborative triumph. The 1837 Erard piano he plays is silver-toned, enigmatic, with surprisingly deep reserves of sound. Eight artfully selected fragments from the 1848 'Album für die Jugend' introduce a programme largely inspired by Bach: the "Scherzo, Gigue, Romanze und Fughette", "Sieben Clavierstücke in Fughettenform", "Waldszenen" and "Kinderszenen". Subtly coloured and almost transparent in texture, Staier's playing has gravity, romance and rigour.

The Telegraph
totally captivating… Staier has a marvellous subtle touch…
