The two piano trios coupled on this CD were both written during the first half of the 19th century. They are performed by the exciting young American group, the Manhattan Piano Trio.

Since its inception in 2004, the Manhattan Piano Trio has quickly become one of the most creative, exciting and dynamic young ensembles in the United States. With more than 300 concerts in its first five seasons alone, it is one of the most active groups in the classical music scene, and has won many prestigious awards, including prizes at the 2006 Plowman Chamber Music Competition and the 2007 Yellow Springs Chamber Music Competition.

Frederick Chopin wrote his Piano Trio in G minor, his only work for this particular combination, in 1830. He was only 19 years old, and consequently the piece is infused with a sense of youthful exuberance. Robert Schumannís Piano Trio in G minor was written in 1851 and first performed publicly in Leipzig in 1852. It is dedicated to Danish composer Niels Gade.

Manhattan Piano Trio:
- Wayne Lee (violin)
- Dmitry Kouzov (cello)
- Milana Strezeva (piano)
