Films, books – watch, read – characters, stories: See Siang Wong frequently turns to such comparisons when speaking about the cycles for piano on this recording. An enormous variety in the smallest space, that is what See Siang Wong would like to express, enormous agitation in connection with intimate, introverted moments augmented by elements that flow or recede. "I think Schumann’s music is a search for one’s self, for one’s own Eusebius and Florestan." Perhaps this is also the case for the listener.
