In 1846, when Clara Schumann finished her piano trio Op. 17, she was just 27 years of age, a travelling virtuoso as well as a mother of four. Acclaimed as a pianist, her compositions – which she herself downplayed as “the works of a woman” – have not until the present day received the recognition they deserve. Leonard Bernstein’s chamber music works too are hardly known today – though not the motifs of this music, which later helped Bernstein to great splendour in his world-famous stage works. A third rarity is Ernst von Dohnányi’s first work: a piano quintet that none other than Johannes Brahms praised to the skies.
