World Première Recording on period instruments

Robert Schumann’s Piano Quartet, like its companion work, the Piano Quintet, was created in 1842, an astonishingly productive year devoted to chamber music. A more classically oriented piece than its sister-work, the quartet combines transparency with Romantic passion and emotional intensity. The CD is completed with the rarely heard A-Major Trio of Liszt’s rival, Sigismond Thalberg. The members of the Atlantis Trio & Ensemble perform both works with their usual mastery.
