Vasks - Piano Trio & Piano Quartet
Peteris Vasks, studied at the Riga College of Music. He studied violin and double bass until 1970, and then studied composition from 1973 to 1978. In 1996 he was named the “main composer“ at the Stockholm Festival of New Music and awarded the Herder Music Prize. Since 1994 he has been an honorary member of the Latvian Academy of Sciences. With over 30 recordings for MDG the Trio Parnassus is one of the worlds leading instrumental ensembles.
“A few months ago Hänssler released a fine version of his Episodi e canto perpetuo for piano trio… The same work now appears from the Trio Parnassus in an equally strong performance that was recorded in the presence of the composer. In the Parnassus performance, the atmospheric acoustic serves to intensify a real sense of expectancy and prepare us more effectively for the ensuing emotionally fraught struggle than on the Hänssler version.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2008 *****
“Written in 1985, the Episodi e canto perpetuo… grippingly charts, in Vasks's words, "a painful journey through misery, disappointment and suffering towards love…" Marvellously recorded by MDG, the Trio Parnassus give a highly persuasive account…” Gramophone Magazine, January 2009
