Notes & Reviews:
Aleksandr Grechaninov is more widely known for his liturgical music and songs. Until recently, his works in other genres were rarely performed or recorded. Grechaninov's chamber music in particular is wholly undeserving of the neglect that has befallen it. There are ten major pieces of chamber music by Grechaninov: four string quartets, two clarinet sonatas, a violin sonata and three Piano Trios, which are presented here by the Moscow Rachmaninov Trio. These lesser-known works reveal that Grechaninov's wide-ranging and creative artistry rivals that of his better-known compatriot composers more commonly represented on disc and in the concert hall.
