Peter Tchaikovsky/Victor Kissine "Piano Trio"

SOURCE: Published: 2011-06-07
Gidon Kremer: violin
Giedrė Dirvanauskaitė: violoncello
Khatia Buniatishvili: piano

Two compositions bracketing the history of Russian chamber music. A revelatory account of Tchaikovsky's piano trio op.50, juxtaposed with Victor Kissine's “Zerkalo" of 2009, a work dedicated to performers Kremer, Dirvanauskaite and Buniatshvikli, and inspired by two lines from Anna Akhmatova: “The mirror dreams only of the mirror / Silence watches over silence." Issued on the eve of a major tour with dates in both Europe and Japan, and with Georgian pianist Khatia Buniatishvili and Lithuanian cellist Giedrė Dirvanauskaitė hailed as two of the most gifted players of their generation, this newest project from Gidon Kremer is certain to be one of the events of the season.
