Bridging the Ages: Disc 2 (2007)

<em>Bridging the Ages:</em> Disc 2

Disc 2 comprises three dolorous piano trios courtesy of two Russian Romantics and an American maverick. Rachmaninov's Trio élégiaque recalls the mournful tone and lyrical intensity of his countryman and idol Tchaikovsky, who dedicated his own monumental Piano Trio “to the memory of a great artist,” the pianist and conductor Nikolay Rubinstein. In between comes Aaron Copland's Vitebsk, which dresses a Russian Jewish folk melody in the composer's inventive musical language.
