Of course no one would dare suggest that Georgy Sviridov (1915-1998) will one day dethrone his master and mentor Shostakovich, of whom he was a disciple between 1936 and 1941 at the Leningrad Conservatory – where he received his diploma only a few days before being conscripted into the army; there are better ways to start a career as a musician… However, as soon as 1945, Sviridov got back to work and wrote his Piano Quintet and his Trio, two major works from the worthy and skilful composer, presented in this album by the fiery Beethoven Trio Bonn (complemented by Vladimir Babeshko and Artur Chermonov for the Quintet). And fiery they need to be to master this music in which Shostakovich’s signature can be heard as well as an extremely lyrical and melodic personal language, directly inspired by the overly abundant Russian folkloric background. The album ends with the very famous Romance from the orchestral pieceSnowstorm, an almost (wilfully of course) outrageous moment of Russian pathos, evoking both the great symphonists and melodists of the 19th century, Rachmaninoff without a doubt, and again an intrinsically Russian theme, imaginary or real. The version for piano trio was composed by the Beethoven Trio themselves.
