These are recordings of evergreen freshness.that meld power and musical intelligence.

The ensemble’s triumph is in finding ideal tempos throughout. They enter fearlessly into the twilit spaces of the slow movement of Schumann’s First Trio while finding a delicious flow in the finale. Trio No 2 in F major offers more light, the players achieving a blissful sense of unfolding. The late-period G minor Trio is notable for its Innigkeit, while the Fantasiestücke reveals the Horszowskis’ fertile imagination.

The discography for this repertoire is smaller than one might think, and while the Borodin Trio’s accounts tower, the Horszowski Trio offers a winning combination of youthful energy and artistic maturity.
