Russian Piano Trio
Mikhail Glinka, Trio Pathétique for Piano Trio
Anton Arensky, Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor, Op. 32
Aleksandr Zhuk, violin
Ashley Garritson, cello
Catherine Lan, piano
Romance is in the air with these fine and substantial piano trios, both in D minor, by Russian composers Mikhail Glinka (1804 - 1857) and Anton Arensky (1861 - 1906). These works are full blooded, highly romantic, and express the Slavonic soul in the deeply sonorous vibrations of the cello, the soaring melodic lines of the violin, and the brilliant and virtuosic flourishes of the piano. Glinka was the first composer within Russia to create romances, operas and chamber music based on Russian themes and using Russian folk melodies. Arensky wrote his Piano Trio No.1 in 1894 in four movements, and it was dedicated to legendary Russian cellist Karl Davidoff.

Beethoven & Messiaen
Ludwig van Beethoven, Trio in B-flat Major, Op. 11
Olivier Messiaen, Quatuor pour la fin du temps (Quartet for the End of Time)
Paul Green, clarinet
Leonid Sigal, violin
Ashley Garritson, cello
Tao Lin, piano
The Piano Trio in B-flat Major, Op. 11, was composed by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1797 and published in Vienna the next year. Also known by the nickname "Gassenhauer Trio," it is one of a series of early chamber works, many involving woodwind instruments because of their popularity and novelty at the time. Quartet for the End of Time was first heard on a frigid January night in 1941, at the Stalag VIIIA prisoner of war camp, in Görlitz, Germany. Olivier Messiaen wrote most of it after being captured as a French soldier during the German invasion of 1940. The première took place in Barrack 27 with the German officers of the camp in the front row. A fellow inmate drew up a program in Art Nouveau style, to which an official stamp was affixed: "Stalag VIIIA 49 geprüft [approved]."
