Productions by the Munich Piano Trio delight us time and again: one time they’ll discover unknown works and draw an “Ah!” of astonishment, while the next time they’ll focus on the great works of the repertoire and “Wow!” us with their marvelous interpretation. The eighth GENUIN CD by the ensemble, now celebrating its 33rd year, is inspired by Robert Schumann’s guiding principle: the artist’s mission is to cast light into the depths of the human heart. And if speakers could not only emit sound, but were capable of shining, there is no doubt they would be doing so during what is perhaps Schumann’s most well-known Piano Trio No. 2 and his equally wonderful Piano Quartet... Bravo to the persistence of great artists!

"This is a wonderful performance, vibrant, expressive, attentive to the letter and the spirit of the score—absolutely one of the best I’ve heard. (...) the currently release is very strongly recommended."
