For their debut album, the Yugen Trio presents what is arguably the cornerstone of the Piano Trio repertoire: Maurice Ravel’s trio, in a vital and highly expressive performance. Ravel’s masterpiece is preceded by the usually claimed ‘father of the piano trio’, Haydn, with his trio in A major, Hob.XV:35, and by one of Shubert’s compositions from his teenage years, the delightfully mozartian trio in B-flat major D. 28. A voyage from the origins to the culmination of the piano trio, brought with sensitivity and intensity by the Yugen Trio.
