Mendelssohn / Ravel / Rubinstein, Heifetz, Piatigorsky – “Trio / Trio In a Minor” – [RCA Victor/ BMG]

mrtrio

Arthur Rubinstein – piano
Jascha Heifetz – violin
Gregor Piatagorsky – cello

Released February 1951. Heavy vinyl, well-loved condition. In his lifetime, Ravel was dogged by critical and public opinion that regarded him dismissively as a follower of Debussy. Mendelssohn’s trio is so idiomatic as to be playable by third- and fourth- year students.

Side A – Ravel – Piano Trio in A Minor
Side B – Mendelssohn – Piano Trio No. 1 In D Minor, Op. 49
