Review

A delightful grouping of French trios from the Gramophone Awardwinning Florestans, who breathe fresh life into these works top of my list. --GRAMOPHONE

Such flair proves The Florestan Trio, if proof is needed, to be among the finest chamber ensembles of the present day. Outstandingly imaginative performances, finely recorded. --CLASSIC CD

Format: Audio CD
This very well recorded disc from 1999 makes an ideal coupling of the three piano trios by Faure, Debussy and Ravel. The Faure is a late work, the Debussy an early work and the Ravel is a masterpiece written at the height of his very considerable skills. As such they make an interesting group.

The disc starts with the Faure trio written in 1923 the year before his death. By this time, Faure had finally been granted the chair of composition in 1896 at the Paris Conservatoire and in 1905 he became the director of the Conservatoire. During this time he was a controversial figure as he followed his own paths of composition and did not follow the current thinking of the time. In particular he was interested in the detail of composition rather than the overall flow of ideas. Many of his works are therefore less accessible than works written by his contemporaries and this trio is typical of that gulf. However, the Florestan's play with such evident empathy and commitment that the work is able to communicate far more easily than usual.

The Debussy work is the work of a much younger man and dates from 1880. It is a much lighter work written at a time before Debussy had matured as a composer and developed his own style of writing. The early piano trio is essentially designed to give immediate pleasure and that it certainly does here. There is a considerable contrast to be heard between this pice, somewhat akin to 'salon music' of the time and the more complex world of Faure.

The final item is the Ravel Trio from 1914 and here we encounter a true masterpiece with the composer showing off his compositional skills in terms of construction while at the same time providing a deeply rewarding level of musical satisfaction.

A good collection of 20th C French chamber music, but just lacks a passionate edge to performance, particularly in theRavel.

Having just heard a breath-taking live performance of the Ravel by an up and coming Quartet I was somewhat disappointed.
