Cellist’s triumphant return ■ CONCERT: Steven Isserlis and Denes Varjon ■ WHERE:City Recital Hall ■ WHEN:Saturday, July 25 ■ REVIEWER: Steve Moffatt REVIEW TWOhuge red streamers say, ‘‘Musica Viva - music to inspire’’, and how apt that is when on stage below sits Steven Isserlis with his Stradivarius cello and the brilliant young Hungarian pianist Denes Varjon. The English cellist, here on his 14th Australian tour and his third with Musica Viva, is on a mission to open up to audiences the romantic but sometimes quirky music of Robert Schumann, who suffered so badly from manic depression that in his prime he had to stop composing. This is the first time Musica Viva has dedicated an entire concert to the German romantic and it doesn’t take long to understand why Isserlis is so passionate about this composer. Varjon, making his Australian debut, is an ideal counterpart to his charismatic partner. They’ve performed together several times and the chemistry between them is excellent. First up are three Fantasy pieces for cello and piano, composed with customary speed over two days and showing the composer at his gentlest, although there is quite a bit of passion in the final movement. Schumann was the first great composer to write works for children – an interest shared by Isserlis who has written books and music for the young. Four beautiful Fairy Tales followed, two of them quick and playful and with the last one a slow and sad little piece.

At one moment he’d be staring off dreamily to the side and then a passing flash of joy at Schumann’s creation would flit across his face. A thunderous run up the fingerboard would prompt a shaking of the head and his long curly hair would fly like a labradoodle who’s discovered a bone. Isserlis admits to being obsessed by Schumann and has adapted some of his works to cello. One of these is the violin sonata, the last Hanging out for customers?
