The Amatis Piano Trio play Enescu

Recent recordings by Radio 3's New Generation artists. The Amatis Piano Trio play George Enescu's early Piano Trio No 1 in G minor.

New Generation Artists - current NGAs, The Amatis Piano Trio play Enescu's recently re-discovered First Piano Trio.
A child prodigy, George Enescu wrote his Piano Trio in g minor in his early teenage years. The Amatis Trio made this recording of this recently rediscovered work at the BBC studios earlier this year and in the process uncovered a work indebted to Schumann and Brahms but which nonetheless has its own individual voice.
