Taneyev & Rimsky-Korsakov: Piano Trios
Piano Trio in D major Op 22 by Sergei Taneyev
Piano Trio in C minor by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov
Rimsky-Korsakov described Taneyev’s best music as possessing ‘a wealth of beauty and expressiveness’, a verdict with which no one is likely to disagree after hearing the piano trio recorded here.
Rimsky was (unjustly) disparaging towards his own,
unfinished, trio, which emerges as a brooding, substantial
work well worthy of revival.
