As might be expected from this master composer and pianist, Mendelssohn's D-minor trio is graceful and pianistic, the piano part integrated well with the beautiful violin and cello parts. This is without a doubt one of the high-points in Romantic chamber music. Mendelssohn's second piano trio is, like its predecessor, extremely well-balanced among the three instruments. This C-minor masterpiece is a model in compositional form, and a joy to perform.
Includes a complete, high-quality printed solo part; and two compact discs containing a complete reference recording of each trio with soloist; and another recording featuring accompaniments only, minus you, the soloist.
