Piano Trio (plus Goldmark & Zemlinsky Piano Trios), Thomas Irnberger, Evgeni Sinaiski, Attila Cernitori, Gramola SACD 98933
Bending and twisting with summery delight, the Trio makes no bones about Schubert and Bahms as its musical idols: radical in 1949!
Zemlinksy’s Opus Three (with Violin instead ofClarinet) is a darkly
Brahmsian beauty, and Karl Goldmark’s contribution to the genre a real earworm-in-waiting.
