'One glance at Schubert's trio, and the miserable hustle and bustle of human existence vanishes, the world takes on fresh lustre', wrote Robert Schumann in 1836 of Schubert's Piano Trio D898. He was equally admiring of the Viennese composer's other great trio, D929, notably its funeral march-like Andante con moto, later to achieve cinematic fame in Kubrick's 'Barry Lyndon'.

Dvorak s four piano trios are some of the greatest examples of late 19th-century chamber music, and have remained repertoire favorites to this day. His Piano Trio No. 1 in B flat major incorporates melancholy, serenity and vivid excitement in equal measure, while the Piano Trio No. 2 in G minor though written at a time of personal tragedy for Dvorak, achieves a triumphant and emphatic conclusion. Fanfare said of the first volume of Trios, I would urge you with special pleading to acquire this release for what may well be the best Dvorak Dumky on disc ever.

This album presents a selection both from the composer's early trios and later efforts, which reflect the composer's full musical maturity and are greatly admired by critics.

The history of the Russian chamber ensemble of the middle of the 20th century, in all possibility, did not know a more intricate yet remarkable brilliant group of musicians than the celebrated trio of Emil Gilels. Leonid Kogan and Mstislav Rostropovich. All to different in their essence were these three artistic individualities – these three virtuosos, spoilt children of fortune, who were brought together at various stages of disclosure of their outstanding talents. At that, there was not a great difference between their respective ages – Gilels was born in 1916, Kogan was born in 1924 and Rostropovich was born in 1927. Nonetheless, whereas Gilels was already able to reconsider and revise in many ways his principles of work, departing further and further from a pure demonstration of capabilities of his breathtaking technique, Rostropovich and Kogan were still passing through their lengthy period of thrill over their virtuosic powers, affecting their audiences in a straightforward manner.

The complete 6 Piano Trios by Mozart, as interpreted here by the Vega Trio, are works of high aesthetic value that will not only be a pleasure for the listener but also an enriching source of knowledge and reflection for the scholar. His aesthetic and formal relationship with Haydn’s 43 trios and the 6 attributed to Beethoven mark out an ideal path for discovery in this sense. Haydn will become a formal discourse, according to the new parameters of the sonata form, that he inherited from the Baroque: the Sonata Trio (Trio-sonata), based on the structural patterns of Sonatas da Chiesa or da Camera, in which one or more leading instruments are accompanied harmonically by a basso continuo.

Past centuries of Portuguese music have left a rich and varied legacy of repertoire inspired by various national and international aesthetic trends. Luiz Costa's teaching was influential on generations of Portuguese musicians, his Trio, Op. 15 representing his mature neo-classical style and including the most moving Adagio he ever wrote. The wide expressive range of Claúdio Carneyro's Trio, Op. 24 blends both modern and archaic techniques into a work of intimacy, joyousness and drama. Sérgio Azevedo is one of Portugal's leading contemporary composers, his Hukvaldy Trio drawing on fragments by Janáek to create an eerie interaction of past and present.

This group of Rachmaninov piano trios was released in celebration of the 70th birthday of Latvian violinist Gidon Kremer. One might have expected something that placed Kremer more in the spotlight than chamber music, and perhaps something devoted to the enormous influence he has had in reviving neglected Baltic and Eastern European repertory.
