This is the second volume in the London Bridge Trio’s revealing exploration, recorded live, of the influential musical fraternity known as the Leipzig Circle. The ensemble delves deeper into the group that coalesced around Robert and Clara Schumann as Leipzig became a major center of European music making in the 1840s. The program includes Felix Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor, Clara Schumann’s Piano Trio in G minor, and Robert Schumann’s Piano Trio No. 2 in F major. The Leipzig Circle, Volume I was hailed by the Telegraph as “a total delight” while Gramophone admired the London Bridge Trio’s “playing of sensitivity and conviction.”
