5.0 out of 5 stars Great music beautifully performed June 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These trios should be in every collection of Classical Music. Lalo was an excellent composer and these are among his finest works. The performances are wonderful, vigorous, nuanced and the recording quality is top rate. If you appreciate chamber music you will enjoy these beautiful works.

Edouard Lalo (1823-1892) belongs in the ranks of the great French composers of the nineteenth-century but is rarely placed in that category. Why that is the case is beyond me because his orchestral and chamber music is all of a very high quality, with immediate melodic appeal and lasting musical value. (His opera, Le roi d'Ys, which I have not heard save for the fantastic overture, is regarded as a masterpiece in France.) I personally enjoy his music more than that of any other French composer from his time and beyond. Only the Symphonie Espagnole and the Cello Concerto have entered the mainstream repertoire, although his Symphony in G, his ballet Namouna, and his other concertos and short orchestral works are just as excellent as those two works.

But before Lalo composed for orchestra, he was a chamber musician. Three of his finest works in that genre are found on this CD. The first two piano trios were composed early in his career while the third was composed after he had become (somewhat) established. All three are absolutely beautiful and they are an essential addition to anyone's library of chamber music. And I do mean essential. I generally find Brahms to be the most consistent of Romantic composers at creating lovely chamber works but listening to this CD makes me rethink that. While the first two trios may be compared by some to similar works by Schumann or Mendelssohn, I find them to occupy their own sound-world. Lalo's tunes are far more colorful and interesting than those of the two German composers just mentioned and his use of the instruments far more creative. His third trio is a darker and more dramatic work and is regarded by most (including me) to be the best of the three.
