Exploring the byways of Chopin’s work reveals gems such as the elegant Rondeau for two pianos, and the Variations for flute and piano on a theme by Rossini then at the height of his popularity. The substantial Piano Trio Op. 8, dedicated to the cello-playing Prince Antoni Radziwill of Poznañ, is a work in which Chopin allowed his Polish patriotism to be heard. Of the Kungsbacka Piano Trio The Strad asked “is there a better Trio ensemble in Western Europe?”

***

“This CD opens with an enchanting, 1828 Rondo...it proves a fresh and joyous discovery, treated with plenty of TLC by the engaging duo of Simon Crawford-Phillips and Philip Moore...The Kungsbacka Trio balance the three instruments with care [in Op. 8], and they apply a good sense of early Romantic-period ethos, involving gentle string tone and plenty of portamentos.”
