Kungsbacka Piano Trio
Simon Crawford-Phillips (piano), Malin Broman (violin), Jesper Svedberg (cello)
Composed in 1788 at the peak of his creative powers, though at a time of both artistic success and looming personal crisis, Mozart’s last three piano trios are masterpieces whose prevailing character of congenial gaiety is heightened by poignant undercurrents of lyrical melancholy.
The rarely heard Piano Trio K. 442 was completed by the composer’s friend, Maximilian Stadler.
Volume 1 (8.570518) also features the acclaimed young Kungsbacka Piano Trio, winners of the 3rd Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition and Associate Ensemble at London’s Guildhall School of Music & Drama.
