Schumann: Piano Trio No. 2, Kinderszenen, Piano Quartet


The Benvenue Fortepiano Trio concludes its acclaimed and ear-opening traversal of period-instrument performances of Schumann's Piano Trios, supplemented with the Piano Quartet and Kinderszenen.

The Benvenue Fortepiano Trio's acclaimed accounts of Schumann's First and Third Piano Trios opened the ears of chamber music devotees with the crystalline textures of its period instruments and the drawing-room intimacy of its interpretations. Anchored by the enterprising violinist Monica Huggett who has produced numerous chart-topping recordings and a Grammy® nomination for AVIE, the Trio completes Schumann's canon for the genre, complementing the Second Trio with the Piano Quartet and casting the spotlight on Eric Zivian and his mellifluous 1841 instrument with his rendition of Schumann's beloved Kinderszenen.

Personnel: Monica Huggett (violin), Tanya Tomkins (cello), Eric Zivian (fortepiano)

Critical acclaim for The Benvenue Fortepiano Trio:

"Great music will always transcend its own and any other period. That it does it so richly here is due in strong part to the fact that these are not only born but practiced conversationalists. They give us nothing but Schumann in all his abundant spiritual honesty." - BBC Music Magazine
