Schumann achieved perfection with his piano quartet; each part is more contagious than the next. Most of what you hear is Schumann's tempestuous alter ego Florestan, ‘who anticipates all that is to come, and everything new and extraordinary beforehand’. Schumann is performed often, but that doesn’t go for Fauré's first. Time for an astonishing discovery; Fauré incorporated his broken heart after Marianne Viardot, daughter of the famous singer Pauline Viardot-García had ended their engagement.
