Notes & Reviews:

Expedition Audio Recommended
Running over forty-five minutes, the major work on the CD is Rimsky-Korsakov's Piano Trio in C minor... Along with the Tchaikovsky Trio and the last two of Anton Rubinstein, this work is among the most important piano trios of the Russian Romantic era. Still, it is not well represented on CD, so interested listeners will be happy to discover this exceptionally fine version... In all, this is a very enjoyable and generous seventy-five minute program which, if you have an interest in getting to know the epic Rimsky-Korsakov trio, is not to be missed. ... read more ...

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
This appealing chamber music program explores the legacy of Belaiev, a timber merchant who became a significant benefactor of Russian music in the late 19th Century. He inaugurated the Glinka Prize, an enabler of numerous masterpieces. The most substantial work is Rimsky-Korsakoff's Trio, which opens with a shapely cello melody played exquisitely by Alexey Zhilin; this sets the tone for a sunny, rhapsodic work that deserves more exposure. The performances are excellent. Miki Aoki offers warm, often brilliant piano support and shines in four solos: Glazounov's Grand Waltz, Liadov's Barcarolle, Rimsky-Korsakoff's 'Pesenka', and Felix Blumenfeld's 'Sur Mer'. Andrey Baranov has a delicate virtuosity in Rimsky's familiar 'Flight of the Bumblebee' and is warmly expressive in Glazounov's Grand Adagio. The recording is plush, as it should be for such ingratiatingly romantic music.
