Label: Le Palais des Dégustateurs

It is a great pleasure for Le Palais des Dugustateurs to produce Trio Arc’s first recording (featuring Irina Chkourindina on piano, and Ardina and Jan Nehring on strings). This programming of this recording is very cleverly though out, featuring three trios, including Beethoven’s famous trio, “The Spirits,” Frank Martin’s Trio on Irish melodies, and Brahms’ Second Trio. You will be sensitive to the sincerity of musicians who do not force, and do not fall into any easy excesses. You will be convinced by their sober interpretation, without chatter, very precise and which remains always musical.

The two String Quintets are considered to be among Brahms' greatest chamber works. The first was a favorite of the composer, and he wrote to his publisher that, 'you'll never receive anything more beautiful from me.' The second was written when Brahms had all but retired. When he delivered the work to the publisher he wrote, 'with this note you can take leave of my music, because it is high time to stop.' The Nash Ensemble, having recently celebrated their 40th anniversary, are having something of a golden period. Their previous Onyx discs of Turnage and Mendelssohn received rave reviews.

Brahms was 48 years old and at the height of his powers when he completed his Piano Concerto No. 2. The Olympian B flat Concerto is, famously, not only one of the most technically challenging of all piano concertos to play but also one of the longest and a supreme test of the soloist’s technique and stamina. Not far behind it in terms of the challenges it presents the soloist with, is the early Burleske for piano and orchestra by Richard Strauss.

At 21, Brahms sang his youth and the Nordic landscapes in his first Trio, Op.8. At 50, just prior to leaving for America, Dvořák unrolled six musical reveries in his ‘Dumky’ Trio. These two composers who admired each other, made the piano trio one of the perfect genres for confidence and nostalgia.

Robert Schumanncomposed the Op. 47 Piano Quartet in E flat majorin his so-called chamber music year of 1842, immediately after finishing the famous piano quintet in the same key. Despite the proximity in time and tonality, there are clear differences between the two works: the quintet tends more towards a concertantedialogue between the piano and string quartet while the quartet favours equality between the four parts even if the cello has something of a leading role among the strings.

The performances heard on this recording by the superstar duo of violinist Itzhak Perlman and pianist Martha Argerich do not exactly form a discrete group: the first work, Schumann's Violin Sonata No. 1 in A minor, Op. 105, was recorded live in 1998, while the rest consists of 2016 studio recordings. The 1998 performance, however, was part of a concert in Saratoga Springs, New York, that provided the stimulus for the joint recording. The Schumann sonata performance was not released at that time, and the rest of the program expands on the music it presents. It's nice to have the Schumann, which has a good deal of tension and energy. As for the rest, it's hard to point to a clear decline in the skills of either of the septuagenarian performers.
