Notes & Reviews:
Arensky's Piano Trios represent a fine example of the Russian romantic piano trio, a form 'invented' by Tchaikovsky, Arensky's close friend and influence. The Piano Trio No.1 is the more popular of the two, dedicated to the cellist Karl Davidoff. Davidoff is regarded as the founder of the Russian school of cello-playing, and Arensky's dedication accounts for the fact that the cello plays such a prominent role. The Piano Trio No.2 is one of the composer's last works, and marks a considerable advance in Arensky's compositional techniques. Hyperion is delighted to present the Leonore Piano Trio in their début recording.
Gramophone Magazine, April 2014
Here is music for all those who weary of grappling with the complexities of contemporary works to rejoice in an all-Russian fountain of melodic charm...The Leonores play with truly glorious affection and security, and it is hard to imagine playing of a greater empathy.
