For anyone interested in Glinka's Trio, choice here is simple. The new Borodin Trio performance is greatly superior to the Pavane version cited above, which is on the stiff side and not blessed with a very distinguished recording (it is coupled with Beethoven's Clarinet Trio). Not only is the sound far better on the new Chandos, but the playing has a sweep and eloquence, also a neat wit, of which the work stands in some need.

'A superb Brahms recital' Classical CD of the Week, The Daily Telegraph, 30 September 2006 'This is some of the most elegant playing I have heard in Brahms s chamber music…superb playing.' Stephen Johnson, BBC Music Magazine, Proms issue 2006 'They make such a beautiful sound, they sound so utterly in tune with the music, they are so sympathetically recorded that, really, comparisons are irrelevant: this two-disc set has to be a state-of-the-art contender in a field not lacking in other versions of the complete Trios… this newcomer takes some beating.' Piers Burton-Page, International Record Review, July/August 2006

The historical-performance movement has extended its reach into much of the 19th century, but this is the world-premiere recording of Robert Schumann's trios on historical instruments. Actually only the piano dates from Schumann's lifetime, but it's especially the violin and cello that differ markedly from their contemporary counterparts with their gut strings. The result is a pair of Schumann chamber music performances of a quieter cast than the common run, yet also moody and full of strong affect and characterization.

Given the length of his career, the indefatigable Joseph Haydn lived through the multiple upheavals of the musical world between the mid-eighteenth and the early nineteenth centuries, confronting all the problems of a rapidly changing art in order to adapt his activity as a composer to the evolution of his era. Having been deputy then full Kapellmeister to the Esterházy princes since 1761, he was relieved of his duties at the court following the death of Prince Nicholas ‘the Magnificent’ in 1790, after almost thirty years of faithful service, though retaining his title.

Haydn's thirty Piano Trios were written between 1784 and 1797, reflecting both changes in keyboard instruments, as the piano replaced the harpsichord, and developments in sonata form. The Trios included here, dating from the earlier years of this period, are lively, eloquent and often innovative works. The E flat major Trio, Hob.XV:11 won particular contemporary praise for its increased technical challenges and subtle interplay between strings and piano.

These works, and this recording, work for me. Listening to Korngold's Op.1, you'd never suspect he was 12 years old when he composed it. It's the work of a mature composer, albeit one who would go on to find more of his own voice. But that's the case with all great artists of course. And Zemlinksy's works are always ingenious and rewarding. The professional relationship between these two composers makes the relationship between these two trios all the more interesting. As usual, the Beaux Arts Trio plays impeccably and Philips has created a magnificent recording.
