Argenta Trio

The Argenta Trio specialises in rare or forgotten works, as this imaginative programme shows. Debussy wrote his Piano Trio, a charming work redolent of sunny drawing rooms, aged 18; Shostakovich was just 17 when he composed his Trio, still rooted in a Romanticism that he would later reject. Meanwhile, the contemporary Latvian composer Pēteris Vasks evokes the plains of his native land in music of meditative beauty.
