Robert Schumann’s mercurial artistry produced works that stand at the pinnacle of the Romantic tradition.

Given to spontaneous flights of fancy, he composed for whatever combination of instruments moved his spirit. A delightfully eclectic first half precedes one of the classic piano trios of the literature, which shows the versatile Schumann reimagining the Classical style to express unrestrained passion.
