ELFRIDA ANDRÉE (1841-1929): Piano Trios in G Minor and in C Minor, Piano Quartet in A Minor.
Catalogue Number: 04M010
Label: Intim Musik
Reference: IMCD 113
Description: Previously, the only all-Andrée disc we've offered was a two-CD set of organ music (her symphony disc on Sterling and a chamber music disc with different works on Caprice are out of print). But she wrote over 100 pieces and this is our first opportunity to hear any chamber music. The 19-year-old Andrée's G minor trio is gorgeously redolent of both Mendelssohn and Schubert while the latest work here, the C minor trio of 1883, makes you think of Brahms - particularly the heavenly second motive in its beautiful slow movement. She wrote two symphonies too. Dare we hope for the other? Trio Nordica.
