Piano trio Korobeinikov/Gluzman/Moser

In the piano trio Korobeinikov/Gluzman/Moser, three top soloists unite tonight: violinist Vadim Gluzman, cellist Johannes Moser and pianist Andrei Korobeinikov. 'Amazing virtuosity, always at the service of the music,' The Strad judged a Tchaikovsky CD on which Gluzman and Moser collaborated with pianist Yevgeny Sudbin. He was originally supposed to accompany his two musical friends tonight, but due to circumstances he has to be replaced by Andrei Korobeinikov. Piano trio Korobeinikov/Gluzman/Moser will today play Fugitive visions of Mozart by the Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov, in which Mozart's spirit haunts in six miniatures.

Shostakovich and Schubert

The program begins and ends with trios by Shostakovich. Like more beloved Russian piano trios, his Second Piano Trio is a 'requiem'. The composer dedicated it to a good friend who died in his early forties. The work, which was created at the end of the Second World War, is in any case dark and contemplative in tone. Piano trio Korobeinikov/Gluzman/Moser also plays the Piano Trio First , an early work by Shostakovich. It combines youthful romance with irony. By Schubert, the trio chooses the extensive yet very intimate Piano Trio in B flat , D 898.
