About

The new album from the Delta Piano Trio explores the Piano Trios Nos 1 & 2 by Lera Auerbach together with Piano Trio No.2 by Shostakovich.

Whilst searching for contemporary repertoire, the Delta Piano Trio fell in love with Auerbach’s piano trios and after performing them regularly, they reached out to the composer and subsequently enjoyed the opportunity to work on the music together with the composer. This experience has given these musicians a unique insight into Auerbach’s piano trios.

The title of this CD was inspired by Auerbach’s second piano trio, Tryptych: The Mirror with Three Faces (2012), the work at the heart of this disc. Auerbach’s Piano Trio No.1 is one of her earliest works, with fascinating allusions to 19th- and 20th-century musical traditions, yet with the addition of very specific effects which imbue her music with a unique spectrum of colours. The influence of Shostakovich is audible in Auerbach’s Piano Trio No.1, and this disc opens with Shostakovich’s Piano Trio No.2.

The Delta Piano Trio hails from The Netherlands but met in Austria, where they soon discovered a wonderful personal and music rapport; a unique and infectious friendship which is communicated in the joy and intimacy of their performances. The band have performed extensively in Europe, Russia, Israel, China, South Korea and the United States, including concerts at the Salzburg Chamber Music Festival, the New York Chamber Music Festival, and at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam; the Trio has also won prizes at numerous international competitions.
