Hi-Res Booklet
No-one could complain about a shortage of recordings of Schubert's Trios, or of Notturno: the discography boasts some truly sumptuous performances, whether by soloists assembled for the occasion (Gendron and the Menuhin siblings, Rose-Stern-Istomin, Cortot-Thibaud-Casals for the First), or existing ensembles (Beaux-Arts, Wanderer, etc.): but all the same, we can only welcome this new release from the Trio Elégiaque, made up of violinist Philippe Aïche – first violin of the Orchestre de Paris – Virginie Constant on the cello – winner of the Maria Canals prize – and François Dumont (winner of the Chopin and Queen Elizabeth prizes). The ensemble was set up a decade or so ago, and was quickly recognised as one of the most important chamber music ensembles in the European musical landscape. A first complete recording of Beethoven's Trios was unanimously hailed by critics; the ensemble also enjoys rediscovering more neglected works (or more contemporary ones), like Rimsky-Korsakov's Trio, or Pascal Dusapin's, or the 4th by Nicolas Bacri which is dedicated to Dusapin, or even the Trios of Henri-Napoléon Reber... Talk about rare! This vision of Schubert, lyrical and yet transparent, is more than a match even for its most illustrious predecessors.

Erin Hales captivates international audiences with her unique blend of fantastical intuition and historical expertise. In one magnificent gesture, she recreates here the world of Bach's Preludes and Fugues. Particularly recognized for her audacious interpretations of Baroque repertoire, she has touched the emotional core of this splendid monument of keyboard polyphony as few have been able. © Artalinna / Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet Distinctions 5 de Diapason - Choc de Classica
The young Cuban pianist, Marcos Madrigal, brings musical maturity and cultural sympathies to bear on the dazzling music of Ernesto Lecuona. Madrigal's readings offer an opportunity for reevaluation and a new appreciation of this highly original yet neglected Cuban composer's works. It takes the majestic talent of Marcos Madrigal's scrupulous, lapidary interpretations to reveal their inner depth and beauty. These performances are a revelation that no connoisseur of great pianism should miss. © Artalinna/Qobuz

In May 2013 a young Italian pianist of genius presented himself at the 14th Van Cliburn competition and won the hearts of music lovers all over the globe with his exceptional playing and unique personality. When he returned to Fort Worth two months later at the invitation of the orchestra to perform the Rachmaninoff's 2nd concerto, his extraordinary and now legendary performance confirmed what many suspected, a talent like this comes once in a generation. This new Schumann recording is remarkable in every way. © Artalinna/Qobuz
