About the album
Following their critically acclaimed debut album of piano trios by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on period instruments, (Resonus RES10168), the Rautio Piano Trio returns to Resonus Classics in 2018 with a recording of spectacular and often virtuosic works for piano trio by Ludwig van Beethoven, Ferdinand Hiller & Franz Schubert.
With a programme that includes the world premiere recording of Hiller’s Piano Trio No. 6 in C minor alongside Beethoven’s middle-period, Op. 170 ‘Ghost’ Trio and Schubert’s Piano Trio in E-flat major ‘Notturno’, D897, the Rautio Piano Trio presents three striking and individual works each notable for their use of a nocturne, evoking the quiet night-time and an atmosphere of poetic reflection. With these three significant works the development of this most important of chamber genres can be seen throughout this programme - the style and scale of these works taking the piano trio in new directions, increasingly Romantic and even symphonic in nature. A fascinating document of this transitional period in musical history.
