Far from the dark, tortured image often associated with his music, the works on this album testify to an astonishingly serene period in Schumann's life. A fine subject for this first album by the Hanson Quartet for harmonia mundi, whose members are partnered by Adam Laloum for a thrilling reading of a masterpiece of the Romantic repertory: the Piano Quintet.
