Recommend these two albums by the up and coming Trio Karenine from France. They recently came to Asheville, where they performed piano trios by Schumann (Op. 80), Weinberg (Op. 24) and Ravel. Their playing is thoughtful, elegant, passionate and musical. I had never heard of Weinberg (but I bet that Andolink, among others of you, knows his music), but his trio is dramatic and moving (and will be included on a future album of the Karenines). My wife offered them the use of her piano studio for their rehearsal the day before their concert, after which we served them dinner, so we know them not only as talented young musicians, but also very engaging and personable people.
