About

Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov’s influence as composer and teacher was profound in Russia and beyond, yet his chamber music has been overshadowed by his operas and orchestral works. The unfinished Piano Trio in C minor was completed by his son-in-law Maximilian Steinberg to reveal a substantial work of considerable depth. César Cui’s charming and lyrical Farniente is an arrangement from a piano original, while Borodin’s Piano Trio in D major is reminiscent of Mendelssohn in its joyous agility and nostalgic beauty.

This highly collectable five-volume anthology History of the Russian Piano Trio is the first of its kind to be released on disc. The first volume (8574112) was released in November 2020, followed by Vol.2 on 8574113 released January 2021. Each volume is dedicated to a particular period in the history of Russian music and features both well-known scores and rare editions and manuscripts.

The series is compiled chronologically, and Vol.3 features composers who were part of ‘The Mighty Handful’. The programme includes a world-premiere recording in the elegant miniature Farniente by César Cui.
