Format: Audio CD
Gyorgy Ligeti indeed tests himself with this arduous trio, for an unlikely constitution of violin, horn and piano. The blend here is non-existent, yet Ligeti embarks on a new musical language one that will prove to serve him the remainder of the decade and well into the Nineties with forever growing body intriguing works as the"Violin Concerto" and the "Piano Concerto" and the 26 odd Piano Solo Etudes. This Ligeti trio has classical proportions and admirably resolves the timbral problems of the mismatched cross-bred instruments. The "first movement" exposes this timbral miscongruence, with high pinched-like tones in the horn with nasal sounding harmonics in the violin, a sublime ugliness results. The piano here is a mere visitor,simply punctuating this dialogue between the horn and the violin for the greater part of this four movement,very long work. When we get to the "second movement" the 'vivacissimo molto ritmico" Ligeti employs a running asymmetrical scale c-d-e-f-gb-ab-bb-cb, with a rhythmic pattern 3-3-2 . He also utilizes this in his"Etude #4" Fanfares" for piano solo,only with a 3-2-3 rhythm. The result anyway really "cooks" with its incessant unrelenting drive ascending. The piano's role here is very much a percussion instrument, which is necessary to colour the proceedings , but also has gentle sublime moments. The "third movement" 'alla marcia' again is a tour de force"barn-burner", another romp and bop with rhythmic jabs,syncopation,twists and turns with atonal chords displayed, pure,raw rhythm. You have devoted interpreters here to, with seasoned pianist Alan Feinberg who devotes his creativity to contemporary piano expression.Read more ›

Good recording, fine playing. I already had the Brahms, but the Ligeti is quite a piece; clearly very tough to play since the horn part is very exposed.

I bought this CD because I was about to perform the Brahms trio for Horn in Eb at a summer chamber music camp in July 2001. I felt I should try to find out how it was supposed to go, not that my piano teacher approves of that.

What tickled me was Ligeti's hommage to Brahms. Ligeti is one of the world's great contemporary classical composers. Some of his music was chosen by Stanley Kubrick for 2001, a Space Odyssey, before GL became famous. In "Atmospheres" he somehow makes the string orchestra sound like electronic music. Having listened to the horn trio recently in the car, I must confess it is not one of his pieces that grabs me. Never-the-less, I'm not sure we listened to it as loud as it should have been.

Rolf Schulte is an extraordinary violinist whom I have seen perform a lot of new music. Alan Feinberg
has performed a lot of modern American piano music, and I've seen him play the difficult Messaien's Vingt Regards Sur l'Enfant Jesus.

It's hard to find Contemporary Horn related music, in addition, it gives you the popular Brahms Horn Trio. Great Deal!

Wow. What a wonderful performance of the Brahms horn trio. If you're going to own one recording of it, this one is an excellent candidate. Never forget about the famed Lowell Greer recording of it, on the idiomatic natural horn, either. But as for this recording, one could not ask for more. The sound quality is excellent (not *quite* audiophile material but it's still digital and it sounds like a fine example of it), with perfect ambience, allowing the timbres of the three instruments to mesh very well and reverberate to a beautiful compromise between dryness and muddiness. Brahms is still Brahms, so obviously it has its dull moments (and minutes), but with writing like this, the interesting parts make it seem like this performance medium is not at all uncommon. For a companion to this piece, listen to Ethel Smyth's Concerto for Violin, Horn, and Orchestra.
The intonation here is impeccable, as one would expect from performers of this caliber, transitions are seamless, and balance is so tightly and carefully monitored that the textures of the instruments take on unimaginable qualities in some specific moments. Pianos are whisper-volume but still rich, while fortes are majestic and energetic without ever being ugly or blasty. Highly recommended.
The reason this CD gets two stars, of course, is because of the awful piece of trash that follows the Brahms. I would only recommend this to the masochistic. Perhaps this could have scraped three stars if the program order of the CD had been switched, but to deliberately place and expect buyers to endure the Ligeti after hearing the wonderful Brahms is inexcusable. To say that this piece is atonal would be like saying that perhaps a landfill isn't quite the best place to build a five-star resort.
