Brahms: Piano Trio No. 1 in B major, Op. 8
Arlene Sierra: Butterflies Remember a Mountain
Benedetti Elschenbroich Grynyuk Trio
When not performing as a soloist, violinist Nicola Benedetti appears frequently as a chamber musician
- most often with the trio she co-founded with pianist Alexei Grynyuk and cellist Leonard Elschenbroich. Here the three musicians pair Brahms's first and stormiest piano trio - its darkness belying the work's major key - with music by American-born composer Arlene Sierra. Inspired by the migration patterns of butterflies, her Butterflies Remember a Mountain is a work of pointillist detail and shimmering harmonies, painted in a sequence of delicate textural gestures.
