The Swiss Piano Trio released its album of Robert Schumann's Piano Trios No. 1 and No. 2 in 2011, so this follow-up in 2013 presents the Piano Trio No. 3 with Schumann's Fantasiestücke, Op. 88, and, perhaps of most interest, the seriously neglected Piano Trio in G minor by his wife, Clara Schumann. Because this piece is seldom heard, it's placed up front so it can't be missed, and listeners will find that it's complementary to the remaining works. Clara Schumann was the most famous female pianist of her time, though her compositions weren't given their due until late in the 20th century. Increased coverage has made them available to listeners, and her Piano Trio stands among her most finely crafted pieces. Despite its Classical form and clarity of themes and development, it is a moody Romantic piece in the vein explored by her husband, and its brooding melancholia is in keeping with mid-19th German chamber music. The compositions by her husband are in much the same autumnal, introspective style, and the program is balanced overall, with both piano trios being of almost identical length. The ensemble has a smooth and controlled approach to this music, and the richness of the strings is pleasantly blended with the rounded tone of the piano. What this disc lacks in brilliance it compensates with warmth, and the vibrant sonorities of the super audio surround sound format give the musicians a credible salon-like presence.

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.

Bernard Haitink, a Prophet in his Own Land

The great Dutch conductor who died recently at the venerable age of 92 proved the old adage wrong. Recognised by his peers throughout his own country from his youth, Bernard Haitink spent most of his vast career in the Netherlands, first conducting the Dutch Radio Orchestra and then the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for 27 years, with whom he made many legendary recordings for PHILIPS, DECCA and EMI CLASSICS, including more than 450 recordings of a wide range of composers, among which Bruckner and Mahler enjoy pride of place.
