Format:Audio CD
Tchaikovsky initially turned down a request from his patroness, Madame Nadezhda von Meck, to write a piano trio, saying that he didn't like that combination of instruments. But he must have changed his mind, because a year or so later he relented and wrote the A Minor Trio, Op. 50. The work has been criticized because it has some formal problems and because the piano part dominates the proceedings. But this hasn't kept music-lovers from taking the work to their hearts and it has received many fine recordings. Among my favorites are a previous one featuring this disc's pianist, Yefim Bronfman, partnered by Cho-Liang Lin and cellist Gary Hoffman Tchaikovsky: Piano Trio in Am Op50; Arensky: Trio No1. And there is a marvelous recording by Jacqueline du Pré, Pinchas Zukerman and Daniel Barenboim Beethoven: Violin Sonatas Nos. 7-10; Tchaikovsky: Piano Trio. But probably the best of the lot is that by Martha Argerich, Gidon Kremer and Mischa Maisky Shostakovich/Tchaikovsky: Piano Trios; now that one is a barn-burner! Furthermore, each of the above recordings has additional music on the disc. The earlier Bronfman includes the well-loved Arensky Trio. The Barenboim, a 2-CD set at budget price, includes Zukerman and Barenboim playing four late Beethoven violin sonatas. The Argerich contains an incendiary Shostakovich Trio No. 2, Op. 67.

So how does this one with Bronfman, Gil Shaham and the magnificent Norwegian cellist, Truls Mørk, stack up?

1.0 out of 5 stars great performance, awful recording January 28, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The performance is outstanding, three of my favorite artists. Unfortunately the recording is lousy at best. The strings are recorded as though they are distance instruments and the piano is much to dominant and appears to be in front of the strings. My home listening system is high-end so poor recordings are detectable more easily than on other systems.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tchaikovsky: Piano Trio in A Minor Op 50 January 14, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a gentle composition that I have listened to over and over when I want to be calm and at peace. This composition is quite difficult to find and certainly worth owning.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this trio September 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Generally I am less than enthusiastic about chamber music, but the Tchaikovsky Trio is an exception for me. It is a masterpiece -- one of the most beautiful pieces of chamber music ever written. Tchaikovsky wrote this work in memory of his mentor and friend Nicholas Rubinstein and, perhaps for this highly-emotional reason, he pored all of his considerable genius into it. If you are not familiar with this beautiful work please give it a try. You may find that you love it as much as I do.

Tchaikovsky: Piano Trio in A minor, Op. 50 is a 2006 Canary Classics recording starring Yefim Bronfmanon the piano, violinist Gil Shaham and cellist Truls Mörk.
