Description: Gross was an associate of Schumann and played in a string quartet with Ferdinand David but his move first to Tartu and then to St. Petersburg (where he died of cholera) helped erase him from later musical dictionaries. You'll find these chamber works and lieder very much in the Schumann-Mendelssohn vein. German texts. Michael Dahmen (baritone), Yoko Kaneko (1838 Groß fortepiano), Christophe Coin (cello), Quatuor Mosaïques.
