Odysseus Piano Trio -
Grime / Watkins / Schumann / Schumann

This debut release – Grime / Watkins / Schumann / Schumann – by Wales-based Odysseus Piano Trio champions trios by two prominent musical couples, divided by nearly two centuries.

Robert and Clara Schumann’s lives and musical endeavours are familiar, with Clara’s compositions gradually becoming more prominent in recent years. In 21st-century Britain, Helen Grime and Huw Watkins are prominent composers on the international scene. The sound worlds of their distinctive piano trios explore entirely different timbres and textures from each other, also providing illuminating complements to both Schumanns’ works.
