Notes and Editorial Reviews
How often have the three musicians of the Munich Piano Trio opened our ears with unique music! The new, the 9th GENUIN album of the renowned ensemble is also a voyage of discovery to works that one encounters very rarely in the concert hall. And since the composer is none other than Richard Strauss (1864–1949), the credit for the musicians is even greater! We become acquainted with two youthful works, namely a piano trio from 1878 and a piano quartet from 1884. The Munich Piano Trio plays the music, which is worth listening to and masterfully composed, with verve and at the highest standard – entirely worthwhile! Founded in 1982, the Munich Piano Trio is one of the most active and sought-after German chamber music ensembles. The musicians have undertaken lengthy concert tours throughout Europe, North America, Russia, Japan, China, and a few African countries. The Trio has become a welcome guest worldwide with its exceptional programming. Repertoire includes the masterpieces of the trio literature, as well as less frequently performed Romantic and modern works, including new compositions written especially for the ensemble.
