ROBERT SCHUMANN: Trio amb piano n. 1 en re m, op. 63 (1847) 31′

JOHANNES BRAHMS: Trio amb piano n. 1 en Si, op. 8 (1854) 37′

The lives of Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms crossed paths on multiple occasions, and always intensely. Schumann, editor and music critic, as well as a composer, promoted the young composer Brahms through the press and his wife Clara acted as a mentor to a Brahms who was always self-critical with the works he composed and which, often, he discarded or redo until reaching a satisfactory result for him. The Trio n. 1 is a good example of this perfectionist obsession of Brahms, who made a new, remarkably different version of it in 1889. Schumann's first Piano Trio carries the energy, liveliness and diversity of character characteristic of militant Romanticism from the German, within a classic form that is constantly challenged. This Schumann spirit is well present in Wolfgang Rihm's Fremde Szenen, a cycle of piano trios that connect the memory of tradition with the fluidity of modernity.
