About

The combination of piano with string quartet was recognised as a viable ensemble relatively late, no outstanding work of this type appearing until Schumannís Piano Quintet of 1842.

Subsequent composers - notably Brahms, DvořŠk, Franck, Faurť, Elgar and Shostakovich - have added further fine works to the repertoire, some of which, like Schumannís, are now regarded as classics. On this recording, Norwegian pianist Nils Anders Mortensen, together with the EngegŚrd Quartet, presents us with Schumannís Piano Quintet, op.44, and Piano Quartet, op.47.
