RACHMANINOV, S.: Trio élégaique Nos.1 & 2; Two Pieces for cello and piano Op.2, Two Pieces for violin & piano Op.6; Previously Available as CDA 67178 (034571171784) Deleted December 2010

With the exception of the Cello Sonata, all of Rachmaninov’s chamber music comes from the early part of his career. This body of work comprises the four compositions on this disc, together with two unfinished string quartets and also two Romances. The early completed chamber works of Rachmaninov make a fascinating group. All of this music was written before the composer was twenty-one, yet it is wholly characteristic and by no means immature. On this mid-priced Helios series reissue, The Moscow Rachmaninov Trio offers great insight into the composer and their performances bring depth to these youthful works.
