Constantino Gaito: Piano Trio; Piano Quintet based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This disc contains the premiere recording of Constantino Gaito's Piano Trio op. 25 and Quintet op. 24, and also includes the Cello Sonata op. 26 (which has been recorded previously, although I am unable to comment on that version). I had never heard of Gaito before stumbling upon this release on Naxos's online music library, but after one hearing I was hooked and had to get the CD. These three rarely-heard works are loaded with gorgeous music, and each is beautifully played and superbly rendered here in glowing sound. The Trio and Quintet in particular are filled with lush harmonies, beautiful melodies, and sparkling ensemble work from the Sarastro Quartett and pianist Agustina Herrera. This disc comes very highly recommended to chamber music lovers and anyone looking to rediscover forgotten but first-rate music.
