Product Description

The piano trio gained popularity in the second half of the 18th century with the introduction of the pianoforte. The new instrument, more expressive than its predecessors, thrilled musicians and fans alike. Composers rushed to create works showcasing its possibilities resulting in the creation of chamber music intended for performance within the family or among friends.

Any decision to record the complete works of a single composer holds particular interest for performers. Especially when these works encompass the whole of an artist’s career, they allow the listener to trace a striking portrait of the evolution of the composer’s language. The works recorded here by the Gryphon Trio are snapshots of the composer’s lives. They invite us to join them on an interior journey. Juxtaposed with the early works, the mature works speak to us in a new way: exciting in the listener a desire to understand more deeply musical evolution of their creators.

This 9 CD Box Set features works by: Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn and Shostakovich

Le trio avec piano obtient ses premières lettres de noblesse dans la seconde moitié du 18e siècle, alors que les amateurs s'emballent pour ce nouvel instrument, le pianoforte, moins limité au niveau de l'échelle de nuances. En écho à cet engouement, les compositeurs se hâtent de lui offrir un répertoire mettant en valeur ses capacités, dont de nombreuses pages de musique de chambre, à s'approprier en famille ou entre amis. Instantanés d'une vie, d'une époque, les trios interprétés ici par le Gryphon Trio invitent au voyage intérieur. Juxtaposées aux pages de jeunesse, les oeuvres de maturité nous parlent autrement, nous font vibrer, en une volonté consciente de mieux connaître le parcours de ceux qui les ont initiées.

Format: Audio CD
There are no better recordings of most of these trios. This collection should be owned by anyone seriously interested in chamber music.
