The admirers of the large-scale chamber works of Johannes Brahms include not only Clara Schumann ("ingenious through and through"), but also the Munich Piano Trio. The high-ranking formation, now for the second time, shows its admiration for the North German-Viennese master with a GENUIN-CD – their sixth production altogether for the Leipzig label. Together with violist Tilo Widenmeyer, who is much sought-after as a chamber musician, the Munich Piano Trio presents the Second Piano Quartet as well as the great Trio in C minor, Op. 101. Power meets sonic sensitivity, concertante grandeur is coupled with intimate moments. "Grace and poetry", as Clara often said...

"Here the balance between expression and structure, which many would contend is the essence of Brahms, is carefully maintained."
