It is often said that the best Spanish music has been written by Frenchmen. But this disc reveals just how French Spanish composers can be. Refreshingly off-beat repertoire in the shape of piano trios from Joaquin Turina (1882-1949) and the older Granados are given rapturous performances by one of the oldest hands at the game, the Beaux Arts Trio. The pianist, Menahem Pressler, is the longest survivor from this trio, but his companions, violinist Ida Kavafian and cellist Peter Wiley, continue to enhance the name.

This Haitink/Beaux Arts/LPO Triple Concerto is superb and also unique in my experience. The acoustic captures the BA Trio so closely that one can hear their playing in minute detail. At the same time, the orchestral playing is equally detailed and attractively unbloated. The BA plays the concerto from a chamber music perspective more than a triple superstar perspective. Nothing drags and the bouyancy helps. Pressler and Greenhouse are especially eloquent. Both play with beautiful tone.

The 1970s were heady years indeed for the Haydn collector, with complete recorded cycles of the symphonies, quartets and keyboard works and the first-ever recordings of many of the operas. Attracting less immediate attention than these boxed sets were the activities of the Beaux Arts Trio who, proceeding by stealth with one disc at a time, recorded Haydn's complete piano trios between 1970 and 1978.

This is not, of course, the Beaux Arts' first recording of Ravel's Trio. A previous LP version of theirs, on Philips, is effectively replaced by this new performance, recorded in 1983. The earlier one is coupled with Arthur Grumiaux and Istvan Hajdu's accounts of Ravel's Violin Sonata No. 2 and Tzigane, which may be thought more appropriate than the Chausson Trio. Yet another recording of the latter is an unexpected bonus, and most welcome, particularly as it can be said to surpass the already excellent Harmonia Mundi one by Les Musiciens.

These works, and this recording, work for me. Listening to Korngold's Op.1, you'd never suspect he was 12 years old when he composed it. It's the work of a mature composer, albeit one who would go on to find more of his own voice. But that's the case with all great artists of course. And Zemlinksy's works are always ingenious and rewarding. The professional relationship between these two composers makes the relationship between these two trios all the more interesting. As usual, the Beaux Arts Trio plays impeccably and Philips has created a magnificent recording.

As a glance at the above will show, this is not the old Beaux Arts version, for whose restoration I made a plea two years ago, but a new digital account recorded with their new cellist, Peter Wiley and in a different acoustic The Maltings, Snape. In their old version they omitted the fugue (Var. 8), a practice sanctioned by the score (the Borodin on Chandos curiously enough, cut out the variation preceding it) but this time round the players restore it. However, they do make the traditional cut in the finale (bar 9 of page 86 to bar 4 of page 102 Eulenburg score).

Mozart wrote a plethera of fine chamber music in the galante style of the classical era: Quintets for various instruments, string quartets, string trios, string duos, piano trios, violin sonatas and the two magnificent piano quartets here. With these two quartets, Mozart more-or-less invented the genre which was later taken up by Schumann, Brahms and Dvorak. These piano quartets show Mozart in both a dramatic mode in the minor work and a typical merry mood in the major piece.
