George Enesco: Piano Trios ()

by , , ,

George Enescu (the "Enesco" spelling in the graphics for this release is French), not so long ago known only for the two Romanian Rhapsodies for orchestra, is a composer on the way up, with new performances of many of his works flowering both in performance and on recordings. This release by the all-female Trio Brancusi, consisting of two Romanians and one Armenian, contains almost unknown early works; the first two here receive their premiere recordings, and the Piano Trio in G minor, which survived only in a set of parts, had not been performed anywhere since 1898. It's a student work, with a musical language somewhere between Schubert and Schumann, but it is already notable for the sheer density of its textures and for its expert handling of all three instruments. The short STrTnade lointaine packs an effusion of melody into its five-plus minutes. The final Piano Trio in A minor is the only one of the three that is in Enescu's mature language, which fused elements of late-Romantic chromatic harmony... Hide synopsis
