Among his last completed works, Robert Schumann's Violin Concerto in D Minor, WoO 23, was premiered 80 years after his death. This neglected masterwork finds its ideal champion in Paganini Competition winner Isabelle Faust, who is backed here by Pablo Heras-Casado and the Freiburger Barockorchester. On Schumann's Piano Trio no. 3 in G Minor, Faust and her long-time accompanist Alexander Melnikov—with whom she shared the Gramophone, Echo Klassik, and Diapason d'Or awards for their recordings of Beethoven's violin sonatas—are joined by CHOC du Monde de la Musique–winning cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras. The bonus DVD contains footage of the Violin Concerto being performed by Faust with the Berlin Philharmonic. This 2015 recording is the first installment in Harmonia Mundi's three-volume survey of Robert Schumann's complete concertos and piano trios.

"Isabelle Faust brings her flawless technique and peerless intelligent musicianship to two works from a period during which Schumann’s sanity was said to be starting to decline.... Faust's focused tone, stripped of vibrato, combines with the richness of the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra to demonstrate that this work is no strained product of a frail mind but rather a characteristic experiment by this ever-questing composer."—Gramophone

" In this superb performance, Isabelle Faust brings tremendous musical insight and an infinite variety of color to the hugely demanding solo part. The great advantage of presenting Schumann on period instruments is brilliantly demonstrated here. Pablo Heras-Casado and the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra's urgent account of the orchestral accompaniment affords welcome textural clarity and propulsive rhythmic incisiveness.... Similar musical revelations abound in the third Piano Trio where Alexander Melnikov's wonderfully sensitive playing of an early 19th-century piano enables the cello to share more of the musical limelight than is possible on a modern instrument."—Classical-music.com (BBC)
