Description: These rich romantic miniatures (and, of course, the sonata) benefit greatly from the timbre of the fortepiano from the Kunst Historisches Museum in Vienna - the very piano Clara performed on in 1870 at a recital celebrating the opening of the Small Hall of the Vienna Musikverein. Eugenie Russo (1868 Streicher & Son fortepiano).
