Info for Schumann Romances
"I was very diligent all this entire time – it was my most productive year," wrote Robert Schumann in 1849 in a letter to Ferdinand Hiller. This was the year that saw him compose the Three Romances for oboe and piano op. 94, which Robert presented to his wife Clara as a Christmas gift. And the choice of the oboe was no coincidence, since the composer loved the instrument.
The French oboist Céline Moinet presents a selection of works written by Schumann for the oboe or which were specially arranged for the instrument. "I took the liberty of transposing some works for my own instrument, although oboists of Schumann's era had already discovered his oeuvre for themselves," explains the artist. "The oboist Emilius Lund (1830–1893) performed his Three Romances op. 94 at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig in 1863 with Carl Reinecke at the piano. He also arranged and published versions of 'Träumerei' and 'Am Kamin' from Schumann's Kinderszenen (1838) for the oboe."
Clara Schumann too composed Romances (op. 22), originally for violin and piano, but which lend themselves equally well to the oboe. And there is a wonderful arrangement by Theodor Kirchner of Robert Schumann's Studies for the Pedal Piano op. 56, which brings together the oboe, cello and piano.
And it is Schumann's Lieder and lyric gems that are lent a completely unique new colouring thanks to the oboe's timbre. Even though there are no lyrics to this version for oboe and piano – the poetry comes out fully in any case – this is clearly a declaration of love set to music: "My lovely star! I beg you, / Do not fall to the Earth, / Because you see me here below, / Instead, lift me up to heaven, / My lovely star, where you already are!"
Céline Moinet, oboe
For the past ten years, Céline Moinet has been one of the most exceptional performing artists on her instrument. The young oboist’s concerts bring both audiences and critics alike to rapturous applause.
Céline Moinet is in demand as a soloist with all the major orchestras in the world. She has played at the Salzburg Easter Festival under Christoph Eschenbach, with the Staatskapelle Dresden, at the Pacific Music Festival under Fabio Luisi and with the New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra in Suntory Hall. She also regularly tours solo with the Dresden Kapellsolisten and the Kammerorchester Basel.
Céline Moinet was born in Lille, France in 1984 and completed her studies with highest honours at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique under the tutelage of David Walter and Maurice Bourgue. She continued her artistic training with the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester and the orchestra of the National Theater Mannheim. At just 23 years of age, Céline Moinet won the prestigious position of solo oboist at the Staatskapelle Dresden. Since then, she has performed with conductors such as Christian Thielemann, Zubin Mehta, Claudio Abbado and Andris Nelsons. She is also a regular guest of orchestras such as the Vienna Philharmonic and the London Symphony Orchestra.
Céline Moinet is signed with harmonia mundi as an exclusive artist. Her CDs, with works for solo oboe and chamber music with oboe and harp, have been praised by the critics and have achieved outstanding sales for the French, German and British record industries. As a result, Céline Moinet was invited by renowned TV Network Arte and Rolando Villazón to appear on the show “Stars of Tomorrow”.
