Bruch - Brahms - Schubert
Label: ORCHID CLASSICS
Zhislin, Yuri; Martin, Ivan; Lomeiko, Natalia
This new release is a unique interpretation of some of the finest works in the chamber music repertoire: violinist Natalia Lomeiko, violist Yuri Zhislin and pianist Ivan Martin perform trios by Brahms, Bruch and Schubert. Described by The Strad as a “virtuoso with a truly romantic temperament”, Yuri Zhislin recorded his first Orchid Classics album with The Russian Virtuosi of Europe (now Camerata Tchaikovsky), hailed as BBC Music Magazine’s orchestral album of the month in April 2016. Both Zhislin and Natalia Lomeiko are Russian artists who are currently professors at the Royal College of Music, and they are joined by the versatile Ivan Martin on the piano. The trio performs the glorious Trio Op.40 by Brahms, originally featuring a type of hunting horn; Bruch’s autumnal Eight Pieces, written for viola, clarinet and piano, and Schubert’s wonderful Nocturne, conceived for violin, cello and piano. Hearing these works for a different combination of instruments sheds new light on the music, making this a fascinating and essential album.
