Notes and Editorial Reviews

Aleksandr Grechaninov is more widely known for his liturgical music and songs, and his works in other genres were rarely performed until recently. His chamber music in particular is wholly undeserving of the neglect which has befallen it. There are ten major pieces of chamber music by Grechaninov: four string quartets, two clarinet sonatas, a violin sonata and the three works presented here. These lesser-known works reveal that his wide-ranging and creative artistry rivals that of his better-known compatriot composers more commonly represented on disc and in the concert hall.

 Excellent July 10, 2014 By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) See All My Reviews "The Moscow Rachmaninov Trio is simply superb on this Helios recording, which features 2 late Romantic piano trios and a gorgeous cello sonata by the Russian composer Alexander Grechaninov. I found the works to be of extremely high quality and fully competitive with chamber works from other more well known Russian composers. The icing on the cake is the luxurious playing of the MRT, clearly adding to the overall aesthetic excellence of this recording. This is chamber music which may not be all that familiar, but nevertheless deserves to be heard. The sonic quality of the recording is impeccable, so get ready for a fine listening experience. Absolutely recommended." Report Abuse
