Chamber Music – Tuned for Grand Hall
Vadim Gluzman, Johannes Moser and Yevgeny Sudbin Chamber Recital
- Notturno, D. 897
- Piano Trio in F-sharp minor
- Piano Trio in A minor, Op. 50
Born in the Soviet Union but now an Israeli citizen, violinist Vadim Gluzman was ‘discovered’ by Isaac Stern many years ago. He is well known to Budapest audiences and now comes here to play chamber music. And he arrives in the company of artists who are his equal: German-Canadian cellist Johannes Moser is celebrated not only as a virtuoso but virtually as a rock star, while the Russian pianist Yevgeny Sudbin who is currently resident in London is hailed by critics as one of the finest interpreters of Chopin of his generation. Their trio recital opens with the Franz Schubert Notturno (1827), sometimes referred to as the Adagio, followed by a little performed piece by Arno Babajanian, Piano Trio in F-sharp minor. The Soviet-Armenian composer died in 1983. This composition dating from 1952, rich in emotions and melody, is perhaps the most important work written by Babajanian, who was also a pianist and composer of popular songs. Finally it is the turn of the A minor trio, the only piece Tchaikovsky penned for violin, cello and piano. It took on its initial form in Rome in 1881 shortly after he had written to his patron, Madame Meck, to say that he would find it impossible to compose for this particular trio of instruments. Luckily for posterity, he reconsidered his position and especially the second movement with its grand variation series is proof that he was right to overcome his original aversion.
