This is already the seventh exciting CD presented to us by the Munich Piano Trio on GENUIN. Together with Tilo Widenmeyer (viola) and Alexander Rilling (double bass) they have an exciting contrast to offer: the piano quintets of Franz Schubert – the famous Trout Quintet – and of Ralph Vaughan Williams. And they allow us to sense that both composers were gifted art song composers, for each phrase is breathed and felt so that one would like to sing along. The early work of the English folksong collector is an genuinely astonishing discovery: this is great late romanticism on a Brahmsian scale and with an aplomb that almost reminds one of Richard Strauss!

American Record Guide
"I think Schubert would be thrilled to hear it played so well and recorded so beautifully. There are lots of good recordings of the piece, but this must be among the best."
