The Silver Trio brings together three composers of very different provenance and epoch on its latest release

The young Ludwig van Beethoven, who came from the piano as a soloist, ventured his first steps in the direction of chamber music in 1794 by expanding the instrumentation to include the two string instruments – and in doing so created epochal masterpieces that raised the equality of the three instruments to a new level.

Also at home on the piano was Sergei Rachmaninov, who wrote his Trio élégiaque in 1892 as a 19-year-old student, thus demonstrating his exceptional talent at the Moscow Conservatory.

Also a student and 19 years old was Leonard Bernstein when his trio was written – typical of his style with much temperament.

All three are fascinatingly fresh early works, which the likewise still very young Austrian-Swiss trio knows how to realise with congenial youthful verve.
