Synopsis

Album Description
The Bekova recording of the Shostakovich Trio has frequently been considered by reviewers as a benchmark recording against which all other trios must be compared. This piece is at the heart of the Bekova repertoire and was played by the sisters to the composer when they were studying at the Central Music School for Children in Moscow. Reviews of their live performances include the following comments on their debut performance in the West after the trio were able to reunite in London: ?The programme held the audience from their first entry. Being sisters, their rapport was quite natural, but they have something more. Their rhythmic drive is exceptional and also their ability to roughen the sound when necessary, and keep within the limits of good music-making. This was outstanding in their performance of the Shostakovich trio in E minor, op 67, which was breathtaking.? The Strad (Great Britain), May 1990
