Frequent collaborators Leif Ove Andsnes, violinist Christian Tetzlaff and cellist Tanja Tetzlaff record three of Robert Schumann’s Piano Trios for this magnificent 2-CD set. The trio has recorded Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor, Op. 63, Piano Trio No. 2 in F major, and Piano Trio No. 3 in G minor.
The Wall Street Journal has called Leif Ove Andsnes “one of the most gifted musicians of his generation,” while the New York Times has described him as “a pianist of magisterial elegance, power and insight.” With his commanding technique and searching interpretations, the celebrated Norwegian pianist has won worldwide acclaim.
Equally at home in repertoire ranging from Bach to Bartók, and renowned for his interpretations of new music, Christian Tetzlaff has been aptly described as “brilliant and inquisitive” (The New York Times). Engaged by many of the world’s leading orchestras and also a regular guest at the major international festivals, Tetzlaff enjoys partnerships with the most distinguished conductors and chamber music colleagues. He has made a number of highly regarded recordings for Virgin Classics and EMI which won several awards including the Diapason D’Or and ECHO Klassik prize.
