Notes & Reviews:

Chamber music instead of Carnegie Hall! It must have been a great creative urge indeed that compelled Felix Mendelssohn to compose his second piano trio while turning down a conducting invitation to New York - and the result explains just what was at stake here. Beginning with a sweeping symphonic dimension in the first movement, the mighty work builds up to a finale in which quite significant questions are posed, and on this sparkling debut CD the Alba Trio offers refreshingly sophisticated answers to them.
