The Zehetmair Quartet's fresh, spontaneous approach to chamber music proved thrilling on their previous ECM account of Bartók and Hartmann and is every bit as revelatory on this 19th century "core repertoire" - it's as if they return the poetry and immediacy to this much played music of Schumann's. The Zehetmair Quartet "makes it new". Voted Album of the Year at the Gramophone Awards
