Romantic. This Trio's unusual scoring for horn, violin and piano prompted speculation early on about a possible background to it that had no connection with music. Brahms's biographer Max Kalbeck saw in it a lament for the composer's mother, recently deceased, to whom hehad supposedly played folk songs on the horn in his childhood. There is no doubt that Brahms loved the sound of the natural horn, and bestowed several of his most inspired melodies on the instrument. Horn players justifiably adore...

Romantic. Following his early elimination from the "Prix de Rome", the sought-after award for composition students at the Paris Conservatoire, Chausson withdrew to the country in summer 1881 and began composing this ambitious work - out of defiance, so to speak. During his lifetime the trio remained an insider's tip amongst those close to his teacher C‚sar Franck. It was only after its posthumous publication that it was performed more frequently and was gradually recognized as being one of the be...

For violin, cello & piano. "(Trio No. ) begins with the piano playing a slowly morphing chord that starts as a series of strident blasts and gradually loses its sharp edges. Woven between these chords are fragments of a lyrical theme, in tandem violin and cello lines.

Pianist plays from the score. This critical edition of the Trio is an excerpt from the COMPLETE WORKS OF CLAUDE DEBUSSY, Series III, volume 1.

The Trio was long thought to have survived only in an autograph score of its opening movement, plus a cello part showing three more movements. In the early 1980s the musicologist Ellwood Derr discovered Debussy s score of th...

Romantic. The "dumka" is a Slavic folk song or dance of a melancholy character.

The previous year he had played the work on a forty-concert farewell tour of Bohemia with Ferdinand Lachner and Hans Wihan. The editor of our new edition, Christoph Flamm, too...
