Notes and Editorial Reviews

Josef Bohuslav Foerster (1859 - 1951) enriched the development of Czech chamber music in the late 19th and early 20th centuries by a large number of works, including three piano trios: in F minor, Op. 8 (1883); B flat major, Op. 38 (1894); and A minor, Op. 105 (1921). Their music reflects the process of the composer´s maturing, and echoes major inspirational impulses of the time (Foerster´s circle of friends included Gustav Mahler). Foerster´s compositions, not excepting the piano trios, are built on solid philosophical foundations, attesting to his integrity as an artist and as a man. On the whole, they furnish a most valuable evidence of the development of Czech music within a broader international context. This its the first complete Read more presentation of Foerster´s piano trios on CD. Slogan: Foerster piano trios premiered on CD. Read less
