After many concert performances, the Belgian Trio Portici decided to record Rachmaninov’s two rarely recorded Elegiac Trios. Not yet twenty when he composed the first, this one movement work with twelve successive episodes has the structure of a classical sonata despite its musical form. In the second, the style is more personal, the writing more daring and elaborated. The somber nostalgic atmosphere, leaning towards the tragic and, even now and then brightened up by a magic melody, is the same in both works. In the same nostalgic vein, the recording is completed with an elegy for piano solo.
