Notes & Reviews:
One of the latest rare recordings by Trio Tchaikovsky and its original ensemble. The Trio élégiaque no. 2 by Rachmaninoff was composed in the wake of the intense emotion he felt at the death of Tchaikovsky. Shostakovich wrote the Trio no. 2 op. 67 in the first half of 1944 and dedicated it to the memory of his dear friend Ivan Sollertinskij.
