Ravel: Piano Trio
Sharan Leventhal – violin, Jonathan Miller – cello, Randall Hodgkinson – piano
IRavel composed his piano trio in 1914, creating for humanity a true masterpiece of the genre. His virtuoso writing allows the three instruments to always be in balance and equally important. The Trio contains unusual harmonics and voicing, with brilliant and moving affect.
Ravel’s genius for classical form and harmonic splendor fascinates listeners with its exotic Basque and Malaysian motifs, glissandos, trills, harmonics, pizzicatos, and arpeggios.
