Summary:

The Benvenue Fortepiano Trio’s acclaimed accounts of Schumann’s First and Third Piano Trios opened the ears of chamber music devotees with the crystalline textures of its period instruments and the drawing-room intimacy of its interpretations. Anchored by the enterprising violinist Monica Huggett who has produced numerous chart-topping recordings and a Grammy® nomination for AVIE, the Trio completes Schumann’s canon for the genre, complimenting the Second Trio with the Piano Quartet and casting the spotlight on Eric Zivian and his mellifluous 1841 instrument with his rendition of Schumann’s beloved Kinderszenen.
