The Trio Parnassus already caused a sensation with the world premiere recording of Vol. 1 of the chamber music works of Johann Christian Heinrich Rinck, who celebrates his 250th birthday this year. "The rapport throughout between the three musicians is reflected in what to me is a perfect recorded balance between the instruments in an intimate yet airy setting, contributing to a pair of albums that make you wonder why Rinck, whose 250th birthday it was last year, is not a regular visitor to the concert halls of the world." - Gramophone Magazine Since its beginnings, the Trio Parnassus has dedicated itself to long forgotten music. Rinck prefers the smaller form, some of the piano trios even consist of only one or two movements. An exception is the large Trio in D major, which already claims a higher standard with the slow introduction. Even though Rinck is of the same age as the currently omnipresent Beethoven, the music could not be more different: rococo lightness meets romantic sentiment, there is no trace of brooding Sturm und Drang. But what the four musicians make of it is far more than fine entertainment and makes listening to this Super Audio CD, which is also sophisticated in terms of sound technology, a pure pleasure.
