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?

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.

Wonderful performance! Despite the previous critique, the recording is great too. Although the piano part was highlighted by Tchaikovsky, the playing is very balanced, and each instrument receives its proper place. The end of the trio, with its hurt breaking sorrow is one of the best I heard.
