Kurtág Hommage to Schubert for Solo Piano Schubert Notturno for Piano Trio, D897 Schubert Piano Trio in E flat major, D929
Imogen Cooper piano Henning Kraggerud violin Adrian Brendel cello
The meditative aura of Schubert’s Notturno arises through the piece’s slow unfolding of a single Adagio movement. The Piano Trio in E-flat major is more dramatic in scope, with striking contrasts and folk-inspired melodies. Kurtág’s piano miniature is a tribute to Schubert, a great inspiration to the Hungarian composer.
