Notes & Reviews:

After a debut album featuring works by Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich, awarded with a prestigious Diapason d’Or in France, the Trio Talweg’s three young usicians - French violinist Sébastien Surel, Belgian cellist Sébastien Walnier and French-Brazilian pianist Juliana Steinbach - explore in their second recording some of Brahms greatest chamber music repertoire: his complete piano trios. The composition of these three major works covers a large period of Johannes Brahms’s creative life. While the first trio, opus 8, was composed by a very young man (1853), the two following works, opus 87 (1880-1882) and opus 101 (1886), were written by a mature artist who later made a complete revision of the opus 8 (1889), admirably combining its youthful energy with the old master’s narrative power. It’s with this last version of the first trio that the Talwegs introduce their interpretation of the complete cycle.
