The Klaviertrio Hannover lands a real coup with its world premiere recording of three piano trios by the composer Emilie Mayer, who has long received too little attention! The works, newly discovered by the ensemble's pianist Katharina Sellheim and specially edited by the trio based on manuscripts, rank with the great piano trios of the 19th century. They are works by a composer whose symphonies were performed throughout Europe in the mid-19th century and whose work secured her a firm place in the contemporary music world. Through its editorial work and inspired interpretation of these three trios, the Hannover Piano Trio provides an essential piece of the puzzle to complete our understanding of the Romantic era!

Das Orchester
"The Hannover Piano Trio succeeds in setting fine nuances and never losing the sense of harmonic coherence."
Review by Alexander Walther, March 2023

Weser Kurier
"Already at the first bars one is enraptured by the elegant momentum"
Review by Sebastian Loskant, 2023, 11 February

"She has rediscovered nine chamber music pieces. Only three of them have been published by Katharina Sellheim. The treasure of Emilie Mayer is far from being recovered."

"Extremely enjoyable"
Review by Steve Arloff in MusicWeb International from October 4 2022

Hannoversche Allgemeine
"Mayer's D minor trio and its sister piece in E-flat major stand up to high comparisons with their rapturous melodicism and compact form. All the more astonishing that the pieces could fall into oblivion."
Review by Stefan Arndt, September 22, 2022

Südwest Presse
"great sonic result of this pioneering work"
Burkhard Schäfer, June 28, 2022

"The premiere recording of Emilie Mayer's piano trios is a discovery: tonally, interpretationally and compositionally."

The Art Music Lounge
"Hopefully, this splendid recording will spark interest in other chamber groups to play her music more often", Lynn René Bayley, The Art Music Lounge, May 25, 2022
