Notes & Reviews:

'I am working quietly away at a Trio which I hope will drive to despair all those unlucky enough to hear it. I shall need the whole summer to perpetrate this atrocity; one must have a little fun somehow.' Should we take literally this declaration of intention by Camille Saint-Saëns. Twenty-five years after a Trio no.1 that was already an indisputable success - with its marvelous scherzo, regulated like clockwork - Saint-Saëns showed everything he was capable of in the second: premiered on 7 December 1892, it did not fail to surprise listeners: after all, one must have a little fun somehow! This title was released for the first time in 2005.
