It was through disobeying his mother’s wish for him to study law, and through late‐night “read throughs” with his friends of chamber works by Mozart and Beethoven, among others, which led Schumann to begin work on his own Piano Quartet in C minor in 1828. By never attending a single law lecture and spending many hours each day practicing and improvising at the piano, he also made the acquaintance of the eightyear‐old Clara Wieck, the daughter of his piano teacher. Already a keyboard prodigy at that young age, it was through playing the subordinate role of accompanying her – now his wife – on a concert tour in 1842, and returning alone to Leipzig where he sank into a deep depression, that he threw himself into the study of the string quartets of Mozart, Beethoven and Haydn, resulting in his own Piano Quartet in E flat. The Piano Quartet in C minor shares many characteristics with Schubert’s Trio in E flat D929 (Op.100) but manages to avoid pastiche. Despite revealing some immature compositional techniques, it is an astonishingly confident work for someone who had received little or no formal musical training. Penned 13 years later, the Piano Quartet in E flat was written by a musician now well versed in the art of composition, and features lyrical melody lines, a bustling Scherzo, and a Vivace finale culminating in some magisterial Bach like passagework. Quartetto Klimt is one of the most interesting chamber music groups in Italy today, regularly performing in prestigious concert seasons and festivals, both in their home country and abroad, and supported by such prestigious artists as Carlo Maria Giulini, Natalia Gutman and Maurizio Pollini. They make their Brilliant Classics debut with this recording, having previously recorded Dvořák’s two quartets for piano and strings for the Amadeus magazine.
