Overview

Chamber music among the late Romantics in Russia was largely restricted to the non-nationalist sphere, and even as creative a figure as Rimsky-Korsakov struggled enough that he left the trio recorded here in a draft state (it was completed by Maximilian Steinberg). The exception was the heavily Western-oriented Sergey Taneyev, who wrote a good deal of chamber music and arguably matched his model, the Tchaikovsky "Piano Trio in A minor, Op. 50," in his "Piano Trio in D major, Op. 22," of 1907. The Leonore Piano Trio, whose pianist is Tim Horton, delivers a strong performance that balances Taneyev's technical, somewhat wonky side with a degree of melodic beauty. Sample the second movement, with its tightly argued set of variations. The Rimsky-Korsakov, as you might expect, is a bit less persuasive, but there are tunes that let you know which composer you're listening to. The Leonore Piano Trio has specialized in neglected repertory of the late Romantics, and these pieces would seem to qualify. The sound from London's All Saints Church is adequate but a bit chilly and vast for the material.
