Notes & Reviews:

Lang Lang revisits giants of Russia's Romantic musical soul, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov, to reveal another side of his prodigious talent - his finesse as a collegial interpreter of chamber music. This release, Lang Lang's first ever chamber music recording, also features two giants of their instruments: Vadim Repin on violin and Mischa Maisky on cello.

"This is a moving, often exciting, sometimes outright playful performance [of the Tchaikovsky trio] of a work that is sometimes done as a monochromatic funeral dirgeThe recorded sound is spectacular, with a depth and breadth that makes one feel like one is hearing the players in an empty, mildly reverberant hall. Not distracted by the sight of Lang Lang over-emoting, one can settle back and enjoy the tragic intensity of the bookends that open and close the pieceThe performers present Rachmaninoff's early one-movement Trio Elegiaque with the same expressiveness and emotional engagementyou'll find plenty to enjoy here." - American Record Guide
