Though he was inspired to make his first significant contributions to the genre following the publication of one of the most enduringly popular piano trios of all time -- Mendelssohn's D minor Trio -- Schumann's piano trios did not garner the same reaction as Mendelssohn's, nor have they proven to be especially popular to modern audiences. Schumann tries to say a lot in his trios, imbuing them with song-like qualities, poeticism, and sweeping Romantic gestures. For listeners and performers alike, it can at times be too much to easily digest. Solid, demonstrative performances help greatly in navigating the scores to these works. The Swiss Piano Trio, on this Audite album featuring the First and Second piano trios, provides just such performances. The opening of the D minor trio is surprisingly heavy and stodgy, but this characteristic is fortunately abandoned for the remainder of the album. The ensemble has a unique ability to produce both a unified, homogenous sound quality and to allow individual instruments to clearly penetrate the sometimes dense texture. This brings to light individual motives, gestures, and melodies, allowing listeners to better understand Schumann's intentions. Audite's SACD sound quality is pleasingly rich and resonant while maintaining clarity and articulation of individual parts.

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.
