Album Summary

Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Claude Debussy's Piano Trio was his first instrumental composition and an impressive start by one of the greatest of the greats. First discovered in the 1980s, this composition distinguished by youthful impetuosity affords us spectacular audio insights into the artistic development of this later master of French impressionism.

By contrast, in Maurice Ravel's Piano Trio witnesses the sovereignty of a self-assured artist. For Ravel wanderlust and rootedness were not opposing terms: with its wild alternation between 5/4 and 7/4 time the last movement creates associations with the composer's Basque homeland.

The Trio Parnassus celebrated its MDG debut with this benchmark recording - the beginning of an unexampled success story. Several dozen trailblazing releases have followed, and this exceptional ensemble has continued to record exclusively for MDG.
