GUIOMAR NOVAES/SCHUMANN


Novaes available recordings are sadly limited considering her recording history. She is among the the best of the "Romantic" interpreters. Her Schumann and Chopin are exquisite . Here is a Turnabout recording long out of print. It is a vinyl LP transfered to CDR using Pro Tools. It contains Carnaval, Scenes From Childhood, and Papillons. They are among the finest of all time.

Her style of playing has fallen out of favor. This is a sad state of affairs, too. I enjoy her unique singing quality and feminine touch at the keyboard. I recall one You Tuber describing her as overrated and that she made too many mistakes. I thought that person crazy. I adore her music.
