The first and last of Robert Schumannís three piano trios are here performed on original instruments by Voces Intimae, one of the best ensembles of its type to appear in recent years.

The piano trio Voces Intimaeís 2006 recording of music by Hummel on period instruments for Warner Classics was a major critical success, being picked as a Criticís Choice for that year on BBC Radio 3. Voces Intimae has also made acclaimed recordings of the trios of Franz Schubert and Felix Mendelssohn Bartoldy, as well as a selection of 19th century Fantasias based on the operas of Vincenzo Bellini, all on period instruments.

This recording of Schumann Piano Trios is their debut release on Challenge Classics. The trio has appeared in many major venues, including the Wigmore Hall and St Johnís Smith Square in London, the Carnegie Hall in New York, the Musik Halle in Hamburg, the Vredenburg in Utrecht, and the Amici della Musica of Florence.

The first two of Robert Schumannís three piano trios, Op.63 in D minor and Op.80 in F major, were written in 1847. The Piano Trio in G minor Op.110 followed in 1951, and is dedicated to his friend the Danish composer Niels Wilhelm Gade.

Voces Intimae:
- Riccardo Cecchetti (piano)
- Luigi De Filippi (violin)
- Sandro Meo (cello)
