Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine - Erik Levi
Recorded hereàthe (C minor Piano Quartet) presents many fascinating anticipations of his maturity àthe performance is strongly committed. The augmented Trio Parnassus gives an equally persuasive account of the later E flat Quartet, fleet of footàand producing a wonderful sense of repose in the yearning melodies of the Andante Cantabile.

BBC Music Magazine
Those who believe that in his early years Schumann showed little abilityà will find the 19-year-old composer's C minor Piano Quartet a revelation. àthe performance is strongly committed. The augmented Trio Parnassus gives an equally persuasive account of the later E flat Quartet, fleet of foot in the scurrying passagework of the Scherzo and Finale, and producing a wonderful sense of repose in the yearning melodies of the Andante cantabile.
