5.0 out of 5 stars Somebody listen to this recording! 3 April 2006
By D. J. Edwards - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Such a glorious set of Aresnky trios deserves more attention! Where are the fans of chamber music hiding these days? This is a gem of a recording. Lyrical and beautiful, these trios deserve at least a couple of hearings. The Borodin Trio outdo themselves with pinache, rhythmic joy, and a very special aura that has to be heard because there are no words to describe the magic performed here.

I came across the opus 32 trio by accident when I went to a Yale chamber Music peformance of compettion winners. They made a masterpiece of this trio, Arensky's best known musical piece.The second trio Op. 73, if not so well known, falls in the category of unjustly neglected music. According to the prgram notes of the concert, Arensky is not considered a significant figure in the history of music. What happened to the works abetween Op 52 and Op 73? That sounds like of lot of lost music to me. The program also states that the Arensky composed "ecletic" Romanic music cought somewhere between the Russian nationalism of the "Big Five" and the more refined "european" classicism favored by Tchaikovksy. Well in mho they're also caught between the Gorgeous and the very Memorable. His string quartet Op. 35 on Hyperion with the Raphael Ensemble, which includeas Tchaikovksy's Souvenir de Florence, is another musical wonder played as if they were masterpieces, but then again in my biased opinion I think this can be said about just almost every work the Raphael Ensemble have recorded. Please I'd like to known if anyone else enjoys these discs as I do. The Arensky trios are a wonderful gift!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Chamber Music 27 July 2012
By Samir Sobhy - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I recently came to know the music of the Russian composer Anton Stepanovivh Arensky (1861-1906). He was Rimsky-Korsakov's student at the St Petersburg Conservatory in 1879. After graduation in 1882, he began teaching music, having Rachmaninov and Scriabin among his students. He became a conductor, and was appointed Director of the Imperial Chapel in 1895.
The 1st of his 2 Piano Trios was published in 1894, and the 2nd was composed in 1905, a year before his death. The 1st Trio is one of his best-known chamber compositions, while the 2nd is far less known. However, both show Arensky's skills in writing instrumental compositions. The 1st Trio seems more dynamic, with nicer melodies and themes.
The trios are performed by 3 members of the well-known Borodin Quartet, taking at this occasion the name Borodin Trio. They are excellent Russian performers, who emigrated from the Soviet Union and settled in Canada.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this! 31 Jan 2013
By A. Hanson - Published on

Unless you enjoy paying money to hear a wonder piece of chamber music played at "a rehearsal tempo", with a violinist who occasionally misses a note, DON'T BUY THIS. I am extremely disappointed in this recording.

Shame on me for not listening to the samples. I saw that it was performed by the Borodin Trio, and I have another recording by them which is very good. Why this one is performed so slow is beyond me.

Make sure you listen to the samples before you decide to buy. I didn't -- and I am sorry. It's a lousy rendition.
