Schumann Fantasie in C major; Liszt Sonata in B minor

Available on Bandcamp (audio), and other streaming platforms

Schumann's Fantasy and Liszt's Sonata naturally belong together. The Fantasy was published in 1839, with a dedication to Schumann's colleague and occasional friend, Liszt. In turn, 14 years later, Liszt dedicated his Sonata to Schumann. The fact that these two musical titans of the 19th century dedicating their works to each other represents perhaps the greatest exchange in the history of western classical music.
