Schubert, the lied composer, the romantic, the instrumental architect, the thoughtful believer, the desparate, the philantropist: nowhere are you nearer to him than in his songs, as is substantiated by his own judgement:
„Ich will sing to you a cycle of ghastly songs. I am eager to see what you have to say about them. They have afflicted me more than other ones ... I like these songs more than all the others, and you will also learn to like them.“

"The Munic Piano Trio plays the pieces with noble precision, stylistically following more the references than a conception of juvenile agitation."
"This performance by the Münchner Klaviertrio ... serves more to bring out the accomplishments of the young composer. ... This is a highly rewarding release, which clearly shows the progression of Richard Strauss the composer and which any self-respecting Straussian will relish. Strauss is clearly evident in patches of this music, especially in the piano writing of the Piano Quartet, and the Münchner Klaviertrio bring this out expertly. ... the recorded sound is also clear and detailed."
The late romantic Cello Sonata, Opus 19 and the Piano Quartet, Opus 29 of Georg Schumann, a contemporary of Richard Strauss, appears in September 2014 on the cpo label.
These neglected masterpieces, which until now have not been recorded, are sure to raise high interest among critics, musicians and most important, listeners!
In 2016, the Munich Piano trio has marketed two master compositions by Robert Schumann: the Piano Trio Opus 80 and the Piano Quartet Opus 47 with Tilo Widenmeyer as violist. It is the eights GENUIN-CD of the ensemble.
The CD was promoted on February 22, 2016 in the broadcasting Tonart-Klassik of Deutschlandradio-Kultur.
“One of our most essential singers arrived for a rare New York recital in February at Zankel Hall. It was a quietly shattering yet deeply satisfying evening, a study in aging, nostalgia and death pursued through ripe Respighi songs, autumnal Nadia Boulanger, changeable early Britten, wryly pained Poulenc. (And, as encores, exquisitely shaped Frescobaldi and an almost murmured Habanera from “Carmen.”) No program notes, no speeches from the stage: She treated her audience like adults, sharing an intimacy charged with mystery.”

W. A. Mozart: Piano Concertos KV 413 and KV 415
— Saturday, March 23, 2019 at 4 pm
The arrangement of the piano concertos without wind instruments was suggested by Mozart himself as a possible version. In the advertisement of the first edition from January, 1783, Mozart notes that the concertos “could be performed with a large orchestra with winds, but also as well with a quartet for 2 violins, 1 viola, and cello, without winds.”
The video stream will soon be placed.
