Notes and Editorial Reviews

Rimsky-Korsakov described Taneyev's best music as possessing ''a wealth of beauty and expressiveness,'' a pronouncement no one is likely to disagree after hearing the Leonore Piano Trio's dazzling reading. Rimsky-Korsakov, however, was (unjustly) disparaging towards his own unfinished trio, but this brooding, substantial work is proves well worthy of revival.
