Shostakovitch / Smetena: Piano Trios
Smetana's music is Slavic although the work has a sad background - Smetana's daughter died shortly before, only four years old. The trio is dedicated to her memory, lamenting phrases and groans express the pain in the music.
Shostakovich's Trio op. 67 also commemorates a deceased person; the composer's deep consternation over the sudden death of a friend is expressed like a heart-rending lament.
Captured with great sympathy, this new recording - pressed onto the Hybrid SACD in the best super audio quality - convinces with its striking naturalness in imaging and reproduction.
