Editorial Reviews

The Argenta Trio gives whirlwind virtuosic readings of Mendelssohn's masterpieces. The Piano Trios are works that influenced many of the great composers of the era, including Johannes Brahms. In reviewing the D minor Trio, Robert Schumann wrote that Mendelssohn was "the Mozart of the nineteenth century, the most illuminating of musicians." The superb Argenta Trio is resident chamber ensemble at the University of Nevada, Reno.

Format: Audio CD
In these studio recordings, the Argenta Trio has managed an amazing feat: duplicating the excitement of their electrifying live concerts. Their bravura playing is simultaneously emotionally dramatic, sonically ravishing, and musically profound. They elucidate these dense and florid scores with a rare combination of clarity, precision, and passion. The demands the players have made upon themselves, the standards they have set, are of the highest order. And they have achieved them. These performances stack up with anybody, anywhere, anytime.

Tempos range from brisk to terrifying in the scherzos, though obviously well within the players' comfort zone. What's striking isn't the speed - after all, many can play fast -- but the enunciation of every note, the etching of every detail. The subtle phrasing and shaping they achieve at these tempos is what makes them so thrilling.

The D minor scherzo performance well illustrates the rationale behind its breakneck pace. A complete comic opera in four minutes, it has such propulsive energy, such antic animation, that it practically demands an accompanying narrative. I imagine the piano as a fugitive child, merrily leading pursuing parents on a breathless chase. Papa cello even seems to protest at one point that he's getting woozy from all the scampering about. Likewise the D minor's finale builds on an insistent gypsy dance figure to a succession of blazing climaxes.

Slow movements and reflective interludes are equally effective, the trio's versatility evident in moving episodes of sweetness and pathos. In the finale of the C minor, they bring magisterial power to the statement of the chorale theme, a cosmic resolution of the work's wrenching conflict.

Sant'Ambrogio's violin soars in ringing, silver tones.
