Work Introduction

On hearing Rihm’s Trio Concerto for the first time, one would be forgiven for wondering whether an unknown work by Gabriel Fauré had been discovered in the vaults of his estate. The difficulty associated with the instrumentation is plain to see. If the trio is understood as “one” solo instrument, one circumvents the subtle sound possibilities associated with the instrumentation at the same time – a problem with which not only Beethoven struggled. However, unlike the latter, Rihm has the piano trio begin and then, with growing intensity, mixes in the orchestra in constantly new nuances of tone. Brilliant and very rewarding.
