The Rautio Piano Trio make their Resonus Classics recording debut with a disc of three Piano Trios by Mozart in B flat major, K502; in E major, K542; and in G major, K564. Becoming particularly well-known for presenting a wide range of the trio repertoire on both period and modern instruments, the Rautio Piano Trio perform here on period instruments – including a fortepiano that once belonged to the late Christopher Hogwood.

‘…ravishing tone and depth of timbre … a real sense of musical line.’ - The Independent

‘The Rautio Piano Trio gave mature and persuasive accounts’ - The Strad

Rautio Piano Trio:
- Jane Gordon (violin)
- Victoria Simonsen (cello)
- Jan Rautio (piano)


Pianist Jan Rautio here plays a fortepiano (tuned to A=430 Hz in unequal temperament), with cellist Adi Tal and violinist Jane Gordon using gut strings and lighter, shorter bows. The result is playing of great agility and intimacy which immediately solves some of the balance problems in Mozart’s trios when played on a modern grand, especially in accompanying figures. It’s an impressive achievement, a disc to return to often.  Fiona Maddocks
