Notes and Editorial Reviews

REICHA Piano Trios, op. 101: Nos. 1–3 • Guarneri Trio Prague • SUPRAPHON 4057 (79:23)

"These are the first three of six that comprise his op. 101 (and all of his piano trios), with the finale of the last trio now missing. Reicha’s ideas were advanced for his time, but here I find a slight retreat into the parlor. Perhaps when dealing with the wind quintets he was so far out on a limb anyway that he let his imagination soar with no fear of constraints; with the piano trio, by then a revered form that had some pretty heavyweight composers behind it, he was more cautious. Yet these cannot be dismissed, and as this is my favorite chamber-music idiom I am pleased to hear how carefree and caution-to-the-wind the Guarneri Trio
Read more Prague treats these pieces. They seem to get better as they go along, as do the works themselves. By the time we hit the C Major we are fully attuned to what Reicha is doing in this music, and well on our way toward appreciating his accomplishment. Essentially, take Beethoven, remove any angst, and add some advanced harmonic concepts while maintaining a very suave sense of French lyricism, and you have a fine result.

The trios recording is not new—1996 was the previous release date—but the sound and presence are still first-rate. These are the only recordings currently available of any of Reicha’s piano trios, so they become self-recommending by default."
