About the program played on this CD :


N. Kapustin: Trio, Op. 86

Nicolai Kapustin is a Ukrainian composer (1937- ). He studied at the Moscow Conservatory and graduated in 1961. He worked actively as a pianist in big bands and jazz ensembles. His Concerto for Piano and Jazz Orchestra was premiered at the Moscow International Youth Music Festival. After that, devoted himself more to composition, establishing his original style, which fuses jazz with classical music. His works also integrate elements of rock and music from outside the Western sphere. He shows a tendency toward the so-called “Third Stream” and gained much popularity.

His Trio for Flute, Cello, and Piano, op. 86, was composed in 1998 at the age of 60. From the very beginning it has an energetic, jazzy sound. It is not improvisation, however, but a well-written and well-polished work that shows a perfect control of jazz idioms.


G. Pierné: Sonata da Camera, Op.48

Gabriel Pierné (1863-1937) was a French composer and organist. In Paris, he studied organ with Franck and composition with Massenet. At the age of 19, he was awarded the Prix de Rome. His compositions are often broken down into three periods: his “early period,” when he focused on intimate, impressionistic piano pieces; his “middle period,” when he focused on vocal pieces; and his “late period,” when he focused on chamber works.

His Sonata da Camera for Flute, Cello, and Piano, op. 49, was composed in 1927, during his late period. The second movement was a kind of homage to flutist Louis Fleury, whose name he spells with certain notes of the melody.


B. Martinů: Trio for Flute, Cello, and Piano, H. 300

Bohuslav Martinů (1890-1959) is a composer from Bohemia. He is admired alongside Janáček as one of the most important Czech composers of the twentieth century.

Martinů studied violin and organ at the Prague Conservatory. He was interested in composition from the youngest age. In 1923 he moved to Paris to study composition with Roussel. Although he devoted himself to the neoclassical style, he started to embrace Czech folk music as well. Over time, he established his original compositional style. In 1941, due to the Nazi invasion of France, he moved to the U.S., where he composed numerous works before returning to Europe during his final years. He died in Switzerland in 1959.

Although his physical and mental strength had diminished due to his harrowing flight from Europe, he quickly began composing once in the U.S. He composed his Trio for Flute, Cello, and Piano (H. 300) during his summer holidays in 1944. The piece is in a French neoclassical style and demonstrates the kind of clarity he had striven for over the course of his career.
