Zürcher Klaviertrio : The Shostakovich Album
Dmitri Shostakovich would have celebrated his 100th birthday this year. And he most certainly would have been pleased by the superb homage offered by the Zurich Piano Trio in the form of this CD, a recording of rare power and inspiration featuring the two Piano Trios Opp. 8 & 67 and the 7 Romances for Soprano and Piano Trio to Poems by Alexander Blok. Vocalist Gun-Brit Barkmin is flawless and the recording by Almut Telsnigs (Bavarian Radio) is guaranteed to satisfy the most critical audiophile. This is the second recording by the Zurich Piano Trio for Claves (after a CD featuring works by Ives, Piazzola and Schnyder, Claves CD 50-2106), a must!
