Notes and Editorial Reviews

On this record, the up-and-coming Swiss piano Trio Rafale follows the fascination "Jugendwerk". In doing so, the young musicians have selected several pieces for their line-up which are characterized by an astonishing mastery. With lots of musical detail and playfulness, the early works of Shostakovich, Henze, Giger, Rachmaninoff and Debussy become a real listening experience. It's hard to believe that these pieces were composed by teenagers. On this record, the up-and-coming Swiss piano Trio Rafale follows the fascination "Jugendwerk".
