This charming trio, Tchaikovsky's homage to the great pianist Nikolai Rubinstein, ranks among the best loved of the composer's chamber works. Tchaikovsky set himself the task of creating a fitting tribute to his esteemed friend within the strictures of the chamber style, an undertaking that demanded a piano part appropriate to Rubinstein's genius that also blended well with violin and cello accompaniment. He succeeded brilliantly, creating a work distinctively Russian in character, that commemorates Rubinstein's love of regional folk music and dances, and alternates between moods of triumph and melancholy for a highly evocative effect. Reproduced here from an authoritative early edition, this popular work will enchant all lovers of chamber music. Unabridged republication of an authoritative early edition.
