French pianist Claire Désert is an avid performer of Robert Schumann's piano music, as is borne out by her various award-winning recordings dedicated to his music. In 2021 she plans to release a new Schumann album, which she will record this summer at Flagey and of which we will hear a preview this evening. She will be combining his passionate music with Beethoven's famous Tempest (Der Sturm) Sonata and the music of one of today's most celebrated composers, Jörg Widmann.
