Notes & Reviews:

Though less known and performed than the trios of contemporaries Mendelssohn and Brahms, the piano trios of Robert Schumann are skillful, attractive, and sincere mature works. Schumann wielded the elements of haunting grief and breezy fun with equal dexterity; a rare gift that the marvelous Rhodes Piano Trio masterfully displays.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
The Rhodes Trio plays the first two Schumann trios with intelligence and sensitivity. The dense contrapuntal passages are executed with clarity. Yes, this is emotionally subtle music. Fortissimo is fortissimo, after all! Most of the dynamics here range from mezzo-piano to a good forte, and sforzandos are executed more like mere accents. While there are some lovely quiet moments, one really needs more of the opposite end to get the full range of Schumann's personality.
