Naxos Records releases debut CD Delta Piano Trio!
Naxos Records, one of the world’s leading classical music labels, released a cd with pianotrios of Russian composers Taneyev and Borodin, performed by the Dutch Delta Piano Trio. The relatively unknown trios of these great composers haven’t previously been released by the label and for the Delta Piano Trio this marks their debut on CD.
The highly romantical Piano Trio Op. 22 by Sergei Taneyev (1856-1915), student and close friend of Tchaikovsky and teacher of both Scriabin and Rachmaninov, is characterized by a subtle use of counterpoint, lyrical expressivity and virtuosic fireworks. Alexander Borodin (1833-1887), a composer, doctor and chemist, was a member of the ‘Mighty Handful’, a group of Russian prominent composers who aimed to incorporate more Russian musical influences in their music and were less influenced by the Western European composing tradition. Glinka saw Borodin’s unfinished, but brilliant pianotrio as a model of a new style of typically Russian music.

The first review!
...harmonic sounds buzz through the hall, nebulous translucent like frosted glass and rich in precise contours like a landscape after a storm. The second movement proceeds fast-paced and almost cheerfully; you can see the Shostakovich Jazz Suites, playful dances again. This is followed by Largo, Allegretto and Adagio and thus the most wonderful quarter of an hour of this evening...
..with youthful vigor, many ideas, cheeky wit and deep thoughtfulness they delight their audience. Non-ending applause is the reward. Not only that, their great stage presence and wonderful playing are a delight, their playing position, the eye contact, the visible effort, the being overcome with the impressive fortissimo passages - all this makes the second part of the concert to an absolute highlight for all the senses. One would have liked to have heard more...
