CHOPIN Piano Trio. LISZT Tristia. RACHMANINOFF Piano Trio No. 1, “Élégiaque.” SHOSTAKOVICH Piano Trio No. 1 Trio D’Ante Vienna GRAMOLA 98934
Chopin’s early Piano Trio has been receiving its fair share of attention lately on disc. As recently as Fanfare 35:5, I reviewed a wonderfully performed recording of the piece by the Kungsbacka Piano Trio on Naxos. Works of a composer’s youth are often still immature and imitative of earlier models, but Chopin’s trio is so technically accomplished and makes such a strong musical impression that one laments his subsequent lack of interest in chamber music until the end of his life, when he wrote his cello sonata.

The program at hand seems a bit oddly chosen, yet it does in the end seem to make sense. What we have, nominally, are three piano trios, one each by the three composers who, most would agree, make up music’s trinity of great pianist-composers—Chopin, Liszt, and Rachmaninoff—but for whom chamber music was not central to their main line of creative efforts. Then we have Shostakovich, who was surely a more than competent pianist, but who is not remembered as a pianist-composer, his main output being chamber music, symphony, and opera.

From this you might deduce that it’s the Shostakovich that’s the fish out of school here, but it’s not; for what the Chopin, Rachmaninoff, and Shostakovich all have in common is that they are in fact piano trios and they all date from early in their respective composers’ careers. Liszt’s Tristia is the anomaly. It’s an arrangement of the sixth number, Vallée d’Obermann , from the Swiss Year of the composer’s Années de pèlerinage. The arrangement was made partially by Liszt and partially by Eduard Lassen in 1880 and, as such, it was neither originally conceived as a piano trio nor does it date from Liszt’s youth.
