What better way to start the season than with exuberant and rhapsodic music from a fraternity of young, brilliant Romantics? While in her teens, Clara Wieck was already a formidable concert pianist and published composer; Albert Dietrich and Robert Volkmann were gifted young composers drawn to the Schumann circle; Johannes Brahms was the youngest, and headed for an immortal career. His ﬁrst Piano Trio is a cornerstone of the repertoire—hear it anew on Context’s stunning Bösendorfer piano, built at the same time Brahms was composing his Trio!
