Notes & Reviews:

AllMusic praised The Benvenue Fortepiano Trio's "intensity, commitment, and unfettered navigation of Schumann's scores." This release is the third in the ensemble's series dedicated to the works of Robert Schumann (1810-1856). This volume features Schumann's most influential chamber work, the Piano Quintet in E flat Op. 44. The piece, which was premiered in 1843, is remembered for it's "extroverted, exuberant" character. It is considered one of Schumann's finest works. The ensemble performs here on period instruments, which enhances the recording by creating the intimate atmosphere for which this chamber music was written. Fanfare Magazine writes that the atmosphere creates "an enlightened view of the music." The Benvenue Fortepiano Trio is pianist Eric Zivian, performing here on a Franz Rousch 1841 fortepiano, violinist Monica Hugget, performing on a 1770 Dutch, and cellist Tanya Tomkins, playing on an 1811 Joseph Panormo.
