5.0 out of 5 stars Shimmering Czechoslovakian Gems..., 24 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dvorák: Piano Trios 1 - 4 (Audio CD)
These splendid recordings of the complete Dvorak piano trios are yet another brilliant re-release by Teldec on their own Apex label (much in the same style as Hyperion's excellent re-releases through Helios). From first to last, these very satisfying renditions - in terms of strikingly idiomatic interpretations and exceedingly adept musicianship - are every Dvorak chamber music lover's dream come true.
The trio Fortenay reigned supreme in this late-romantic repertoire during the late 1980s... and then inexplicably fell out of favor. With this charming re-release - along with their masterly recordings of the Smetana, Chopin, Brahms and Beethoven piano trios - the discerning classical music listener can once again marvel at the skill, warmth and amazing sympathy that the Fortenay had for these immortal classic miniatures. And at super-bargain price, the question of adding these shinning Czechoslovakian gems to your collection becomes obvious.
Very highly recommended!
