1990 Clara Schumann Concerto

Jeff Bradley, Denver Post, September, 1990

“Bravo to Jo Ann Falletta and the Denver Chamber Orchestra for resurrecting the “other” Schumann Piano Concerto last night. As performed by soloist Ann Schein, Clara Schumann’s three movement work might have been written by a young Chopin or perhaps by Mendelssohn…But young Clara left no doubt of her virtuoso’s abilities as pianist and composer in the polonaise-laden Finale, in which all of Schein’s artistry was needed for the cascading runs and…Chopinesque poetry. She won a standing ovation.”
