Lekeu: Piano Trio & Quartet
Belgian composer Guillaume Lekeu had a tragically short life, but, as composer Paul Dukas noted, in these few brief years Lekeu developed "an extraordinary maturity of thought and technique that many older composers would envy." He cultivated these qualities with the assistance of his teachers Cesar Franck and then Vincent d'Indy. Both championed chamber music, a sphere in which Lekeu produced some of his finest works, including the two pieces that appear on this new ATMA recording. Founded in 2000, Trio Hochelaga rapidly distinguished itself on the Canadian musical scene as one of the country's most important musical ensembles. Violinist Anne Robert, cellist Paul Marleyn and pianist Stephane Lemelin share their passion for the chamber music repertoire ranging from the classical era to contemporary music.
“Lekeu's music is a post-Wagnerian ferment of shifting passions...Engaging performances.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2012 ***
“Although the Trio Hochelaga generally play the music for what it is (and with real warmth of tone and ensemble), the temptation to help it along a little by over-egging the expressionism sometimes gest the better of them” Gramophone Magazine, November 2012
