Boris Berezovsky, Dmitri Makhtin, Alexandre Kniazev play Tchaikovsky

La Roque d'Anthéron 2004

The Russian musicians give the best of their souls for a Tchaikovsky concert.

An evening entirely dedicated to Tchaikovsky, with the best Russian musicians today: Boris Berezovsky on piano, Alexander Kniazev on cello and Dmitri Makhtin on violin. This masterpiece of chamber music composed by Tchaikovsky in memory of his friend Nikolaï Rubinstein, "In Memory of a Great Artist," is steeped in a sublime lyricism and is the high point of this exceptional evening.

Wonderfully committed to the full measure of their Slav souls, the three musicians release a torrent of emotions and Berezovsky appears to play that evening a real role as a conductor. Around the Trio, the Barcarolle in G Minor played by a Berezovsky in weightlessness, the Nocturne in D Minor by the Kniazev-Berezovsky duo in a state of grace and the Sérénade Mélancolique by the other Makhtin-Berezovsky duo in apnoea.
