Leoš Janáček

Piano Trios
Abegg Trio

EAN/barcode: 4009850008309

"It's common knowledge among Janácekians (Janácekers?) that the First String Quartet began life as a piano trio, most of which was either lost or destroyed. (...) Anyone who loves this composer will certainly want to hear it, and the Abegg Trio plays with the kind of commitment and passion that the music requires. (...) This fascinating experiment makes a fine foil to a similarly excellent performance of Smetana's strangely neglected single work in the trio medium. The Abegg manages to differentiate the tempos and emotional nuances of the first two movements (otherwise so similar) with notable success, and the Presto finale has an athletic vigor that comes from elasticity of rhythm and supple phrasing rather than mere speed. As usual, Tacet's sonics are gorgeous. Definitely worth a listen." (classics today)

Classics Today (01/01/2000):

"It′s common knowledge among Janácekians (Janácekers?) that the First String Quartet began life as a piano trio, most of which was either lost or destroyed. The notes included here are a little vague as to just how much of the original survived to serve as the basis of this reconstruction by Michal Hájku, but no matter. more...

"′Note für Note′ sei ihm ′glühend in die Feder gefallen′, berichtete der fast 70 jährige Janácek, als er im Herbst 1923 binnen einer Woche sein erstes Streichquartett komponierte. more...

Fono Forum (01/01/2000):

"Man kann trefflich darüber streiten, ob es seriös ist, aus den wenigen Skizzen und Fragmenten die "Urfassung" von Janáceks Streichquartett "Kreutzer-Sonate", das zunächst als Klaviertrio konzipiert war, zu erstellen (es handelt sich um die Rekonstruktion der Trio-Urfassung nach dem Streichquartett von 1923, vorgenommen von Michal Hájku). more...

WDR, Forum der Musik (01/01/2000):
