Editorial Reviews

The superb Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio is heard in all of Schubert's music for Piano Trio- the two great masterpieces (the B-flat and E-flat Trios), as well as the rarely played "Sonatensatz" and Notturno. In addition, Sharon Robinson and Joseph Kalichstein perform the lovely "Arpeggione" Sonata. This specially priced release includes notes by Schubert specialist, Malcolm MacDonald.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Schubert composed two four-movement works for piano trio, plus two one-movement works for the same group of instruments. All four works are on this 2-CD set. The trios in B-flat and E-flat were both composed in late 1827. There's no record of the B-flat being performed in the remaining year of Schubert's life, but the E-flat was performed at an all-Schubert concert in March 1828 and published later that year.

The B-flat trio is not as well known as the E-flat one, but it is every bit as beautiful. It's a sunny work throughout, with each movement in a major key. The bittersweet "smiling through tears" characteristic of much of Schubert's late music is not apparent here. Of particular note is the gorgeous melody of the second movement andante, based on a four-note motif. The first movement has one of Schubert's best development sections. The finale is a spirited sonata-rondo. The Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio take fairly leisurely tempos throughout this work, which does bring out the lyricism inherent in this music. Perhaps the tempo is too relaxed in the scherzo, which kind of plods along, but overall they give a respectable performance of the B-flat. At times, the piano tends to overwhelm the strings, an all too frequent occurrence in piano trio performances.

The E-flat trio is a more dramatic work than the B-flat. The well-known second movement andante, used in several movies, most notably in Kubrick's "Barry Lyndon," is based on a Swedish song, "se solen sjunker" (Lo, the sun is setting) that Schubert heard sung in Vienna around the time he was composing the trio. It's a haunting melody of a very melancholic nature. The third movement scherzando is largely in canon between the piano and one or the other string, with an almost brash trio.
