Trio Alba releases a new audiophile recording of Schubert's Piano Trio in E flat major.
One cannot get too much of certain good musical things. One of these things is certainly Franz Schubert's magnificent Piano Trio in E flat major D. 929, which is one reason why this new recording by the Trio Alba is very much welcome. The Notturno D. 897 composed at about the same time as the trio and forming the perfect conclusion to this CD may have been a discarded slow movement from another trio.
The musicians of the Trio Alba met while studying together in Graz and ever since then have regularly performed at leading festivals throughout the world. The ensemble has a very special relationship with Schubert's E flat major trio: 'If you see the sun setting' is the first line of the Swedish folk song in the second movement - which inspires even more joyful anticipation of the dawn, 'alba' in Italian!
