This release celebrates the 200th anniversary year (2010) of both Chopin and Schumann. The trio says:
"These two four-movement works have more in common than their brooding key signature of G minor. Chopin and Schumann share a use of particularly inventive melodic and harmonic language; and the two trios share an earnest, heartfelt lyricism that is so genuine and really quite irresistible."
The Manhattan Piano Trio has quickly become one of the most creative, exciting, and dynamic young ensembles in the United States. Its members are: Milana Strezeva-piano / Wayne Lee-violin / Dmitry Kouzov-cello
