Notes and Editorial Reviews

Constantly shifting from the most impulsive exuberance to the most restrained meditation, from the most intense passion to the most innocent tenderness, this programme forms a representative panorama of Schumann’s chamber music.

 

Going beyond the piano trios, which already give us a fully rounded account of Schumann, Trio Wanderer have invited their favourite partners to join them for their interpretation of two supreme masterpieces - the Piano Quartet and Piano Quintet.

 

REVIEW:

 

There’s an exuberance about the quintet especially that is carried forward into some of the fantasy pieces, and there Trio Wanderer capture that sense of playfulness very well. But the virtues of the Wanderer’s playing, their immaculate ensemble and balance, really come into their own in the numbered trios.
