Robert Schumann Piano Concerto, period performance

Robert Schumann Piano Concerto, period performance

One of my favourites by Robert Schumann! Here it is played on period instruments.

Tonight I was lucky to see this played by the Irish pianist Finghin Collins. He is an amazing talent- one of the best pianists I have ever seen. He plays with such feeling, really lives the music! He conducted the orchestra from the piano- the relationship between him and the orchestra was a wonder to behold ...it was very special. Such magic is hard to put into words.

Here is his website:
