The Frankl-Pauk-Kirshbaum Trio celebrates its silver jubilee next year. While retaining their strong individual musical personalities in the ensemble. the three players also create a powerful musical identity as one of the finest piano trios of the last 25 years. Using recordings from the BBC archives made in the early seventies, this programme begins with Schumann's Piano Trio in F, Op 80 and ends with Dvorak's Trio in F minor, Op 65.
Between them, the Notturno in E flat,
D897, a work Schubert discarded from his great Trio in B flat but which is too beautiful to lose.
