This new recording by the widely-praised Absolut Trio is a major addition to the repertoire of modern music. It includes Schoenberg’s masterpiece ’Verklärte Nacht’ (Transfigured Night) arranged for piano trio by Eduard Steuermann, Schoenberg’s pupil and disciple. This is a major addition to 20th-century piano trio repertoire, and the disc also contains the world premiere recording of Rudolf Kelterborn’s recent and highly-acclaimed ’15 Moments musicaux’ for piano trio (dedicted to the Absolut Trio). Both these interpretations received excellent accolades from the press at the Wigmore Hall première in April 2007. The CD closes with Présence, a ‘Ballet blanc en cinq scènes’ (1961) by the great post-war German composer Bernd Alois Zimmermann. The performances by the Absolut Trio are magnificent making this an outstanding CD for lovers of contemporary music.
A co-production with Schweizer Radio DRS

 

"...Variations in texture provide much of the interest, with the three instruments speaking independently as well as in ensemble. It takes a composer of imagination and power to grab and hold our attentions with such music; that Kelterborn does so proves him a worthy follower of Webern."
