A melancholy dialogue between brilliant musicians, from one of Dvořák's finest chamber works to Brahms's poetic trio
In 1883, Dvořák composed one of his most ardently lyrical and touchingly pure works, the Trio No. 3, like the repercussion of his mother's death a few months earlier. Brahms's second Trio, written the year before, is in some way its sister piece. Three sublime musicians bring them to life. The great violinist Christian Tetzlaff embodies a form of solar perfection that constantly dazzles. With his sister Tanja, who has performed concertos with Maazel, Harding, Ashkenazy and Norrington, he forms a duo that is as intense as it is precious. And when they are joined by pianist Lars Vogt, a stalwart of the international musical scene since the 1990s, the perfect understanding between these talents is patent. There is something reassuring about the very solidity of the three German musicians' craft: with them, Dvořák and Brahms are clearly in good hands.
