1840 was a very significant year in the life of Robert Schumann. He married Clara Wieck and wrote 138 exquisite songs, including the song cycles Liederkreis and Frauen-Liebe und Leben included on this CD.


SHARON ROSTORF-ZAMIR is one of Israel’s most accomplished artists. At the age of 24, she was already a principal soloist with the Frankfurt Opera House, where she stayed for five seasons. She has starred regularly at the Israel Opera House, where her roles included Norina, Olympia, Pamina, Cleopatra and many more. In 2002, the Israeli critics voted her "Opera Singer of the Year.” She has appeared in Europe, Japan and the U.S. in operas, song recitals and as a soloist with orchestras. Recently, she sang in Handel's "Amadigi di Gaula" at the Handel Festspiele in Halle, Germany, and with Al Ayre Español in Spain. She also sang Mozart concert arias with the Deutsche Kammerorchester under the baton of Dan Ettinger at the Berlin Philharmonic hall, and recorded Handel's “Floridante” with the Complesso Barocco and Alan Curtis, for Deutsche Gramophon/Archiv. She has performed the part of Agilea in Handel's "Teseo", in Potsdam, Bayreuth, London and Oxford. This production was released on DVD by Arthaus. Jonathan Zak, one of Israel’s leading pianists, has performed as soloist with all of Israel's major orchestras and appeared as soloist and recitalist both in Israel and abroad. He was one of the founders of the world renowned "Yuval" Trio, with whom he toured worldwide for over 25 years. The trio recorded for Deutsche Gramophone, CBS Masterworks and others. Mr. Zak is appearing now with Irena Friedland as a successful piano duo. Their recent recordings for "Roméo Records" were highly praised in the major music periodicals in the U.S. and Europe. This disc is the fruit of a longstanding collaboration between Sharon Rostorf-Zamir and Jonathan Zak.
