Notes & Reviews:

Mendelssohn's Piano Trios of 1839 and 1845 are pinnacles of the genre in the 19th century. Robert Schumann saw in them a reconciliation of contradictions: the conflicts between lyrical and dramatic form, between intimacy and virtuoso performance, and finally between universality and specificity. This recording marks the beginning of the cooperation between audite and the Swiss Piano Trio; a recording of the complete Schumann Piano Trios is planned next.
