Schumann, Nocturne, op.23 (Carinthian Summer 1971)

The great Russian pianist Emil Gilels was universally acclaimed for his
breathtaking performances of the most demanding concertos and most
challenging piano pieces of piano literature. But he was also a master of
the miniature form, and his interpretations of the "Songs Without Words"
and other little pieces by Mendelssohn, Schumann, Chopin, Grieg and others
were nothing short of mesmerizing. A specialist of the German repertoire,
Gilels gave an all German-Austrian program at the 1971 Carinthian Summer
Festival in Austria, where Schumann's Nachtstück was recorded.
