Arvo PÃ¤rt Mozart-Adagio
Arensky Piano Trio no 1 in D minor
Rachmaninov Trio Ã©lÃ©giaque No 2 in D minor
Two great Russian piano trios are preceded by Arvo PÃ¤rtâ€™s touching little tribute to his friend, violinist Oleg Kagan. Arenskyâ€™s deliciously tunefulÂ trio commemorates the great Russian cellist Karl Davidov, while Rachmaninovâ€™s symphony-sized â€˜elegyâ€™ was composed in memory of Tchaikovsky. Stricken by the death of his friend and mentor he began it the night he heard the tragic news, and poured all his deep sorrow and passion into it.
â€œIs there a better trio in Western Europe?â€
â€œOne of todayâ€™s brightest chamber ensembles.â€
