Composed in 1788 at the peak of his creative powers, though at a time of both artistic success and looming personal crisis, Mozart’s last three piano trios are masterpieces whose prevailing character of congenial gaiety is heightened by poignant undercurrents of lyrical melancholy.

The rarely heard Piano Trio K. 442 was completed by the composer’s friend, Maximilian Stadler.

Volume 1 (8570518) also features the acclaimed young Kungsbacka Piano Trio, winners of the 3rd Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition and Associate Ensemble at London’s Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

****

“Texture plays such an important part in Mozart's late trios and the Kungsbacka Trio clearly relish this aspect, notably in the buoyant finale of the G major Trio; the recording is a little on the hard side.”

Gramophone Magazine

May 2009

“The Kungsbacka Piano Trio… are musicians of enlightened individual and collective probity who incorporate stylistic niceties into interpretations that are all the more authentic for being authentically felt, and absorbingly communicated.”
