Rimsky-korsakov, Arensky: Piano Trios

Label: Praga
Catalog: PRD250285
Format: CD

An original coupling of quasi-contemporary Russian chamber works, contrasting a master with one of his former students and an admirer of Tchaikovsky: or, in other words, the nationalists with the cosmopolitan new generation. Both trios, in minor mode, lie within the splendour of a waning Romanticism in which the keyboard is king, with a nod to Brahms from the composer of ‘Scheherazade’, the Slavic lyric tradition for Arensky.

Arensky: Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor, Op. 32 Rimsky Korsakov: Piano Trio in C minor
