Hans Gál: Unbroken 129

Piano Trios, Variations on a popular Viennese Tune, Karin Adam,

Doris Adam, Christoph Stradner, Camerata 28149

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.

Epomeo, Avie 2259

Music for Cello, Alfia Nakipbekova, Jakob Fichert, Toccata Classics

0043

These quality piano duos, in thoughtful performances by Caroline Clemmow and Anthony Goldstone, make a graceful introduction to the composer.
