Dietrich Piano Trios
Albert Dietrich was a disciple of Robert Schumann and a colleague of Johannes Brahms. His own music, very popular in its own time, serves somewhat as as a link between the two. If he does not share their genius, he did write solid, interesting, and often impressive music.
The two Piano Trios are both very well-made, and perhaps because they do not reach for greatness and big effects, they succeed very well as richly enjoyable chamber music. They perhaps sound more like Mendelssohn than Schumann, but that is nothing to denigrate.
If you love the Mendelssohn piano trios, you will be quite happy with Dietrich's.
The chamber players here do a very capable job. Unlike the performances of other Dietrich compositions I have heard, one never feels that they "get it wrong," or that the music might be played quite differently, perhaps much better.
Since we are not likely to have other renditions to compare, these will do quite nicely, if you please.
If you enjoy Piano Trios this set is well worth investigating.more....
