George Enescu shares with Liszt, Rachmaninoff and Busoni the misfortune of having been a very great virtuoso, both violinist and pianist, who has had to wait a long time before full justice is done to him as a composer. For their first disc, the three young members of the all-female Trio Brancusi present three piano trios by Enesco, including premiere recordings of the Trio in G minor and the Sérénade Lointaine.
George Enescu: Piano Trio in G minor
I. Allegro molto vivace
II. Allegretto graziosi
George Enescu: Serenade lointaine
George Enescu: Piano Trio in A minor
I. Allegro moderato
II. Allegretto con variazioni
III. Vivace amabile
“In the larger trios the Brancusi audibly have the measure of the music and if they seem slightly more at home in the earlier G minor (they gave the UK premiere in london in March), their account of the A minor still compels attention. Heartily recommended.”
“A fascinating release. The Trio in A minor, oscillating between allusions to Romanian folk music and Lisztian chromaticism, is a major discovery and performed here with strong emotional intensity.”
