A generous, warmly recorded programme that helpfully pairs Robert Schumann’s lesser-known trios with Clara’s sole contribution to the genre. Still a rarity in concert, it is a much finer piece than her own evaluation (‘womanish and sentimental’), and here enjoys playing of finesse and sensitivity. If her husband is marginally less well served by these artists, this is because the competition is considerably stronger; but anyone wanting these three pieces will not be disappointed.
