 Two views of G Minor January 25, 2013 By Patricia W. (Big Arm, MT) See All My Reviews "Most music has reasons for being written and in this Smetana Piano trio it is hard to differentiate joyous parts from the sadness from which this was written, the death of his young daughter, but the struggle ends in beautiful music. Chopin is Chopin - the piano reigns and is always lovely. Love the Fontenay Trio, seems very balanced." Report Abuse
