Sergei Rachmaninov- Trio élégiaque, No. 1 in G minor

Leonard Bernstein - Piano trio, 1937

Press release:

The Silver Trio brings together three composers from very different provenances and epochs on their latest release. The young Ludwig van Beethoven, who came from the piano as a soloist, took his first steps towards chamber music in 1794 by expanding the line-up to include two string instruments - and in doing so created epoch-making masterpieces that raised the equality of the three instruments to a new level. Also at home on the piano was Sergei Rachmaninov, who wrote his Trio elegiaque in 1892 as a 19-year-old student and thus demonstrated his exceptional talent at the Moscow Conservatory. Leonard Bernstein was also a student and 19 years old when his trio was created - typical of his style with a lot of temperament. All three are fascinatingly fresh early works, which the still very young Austrian-Swiss trio knows how to implement with congenial, youthful verve.
