Performance:   Sonics:    
Four Czech composers share the program for this SACD. Four compatriots from the national school of the 19th century. Four different figures, of whom Josef Bohuslav Foerster (1859-1951) is probably the least known. He is here represented by the Trio for Piano N°2 in B flat major Op.38. Also to be found are Vitezslav Novak (1870-1949), he too with the Trio for Piano N°2 in D minor “Quasi una Ballata,” Zdenek Fibich (1850-1900) and his Trio for Piano in /f minor. And to finish, Leos Janacek (1854-1928) and “Pohadka” (The Tale) for Cello and Piano (the only work for these instruments by the composer), recorded for the first time in its original four-movement version. “Jiri Zahradka just came out (December 2007) with a critical edition based on the only two editions made up of four movements, as well as the corrections constantly made by the composer to the three others,” states Pierre-Emile Barbier. Like the painting, signed Foerster, illustrating the brochure, the Kinsky Trio from Prague amaze us by their captivating colors. As the score plays out, a pictorial work takes shape, a painting made of musical “flavors” brought out by a magisterial interpretation. In an exemplary DSD sound recording, here is an SACD that is without exaggeration one of the very first order.
