The Bekova Sisters
Shostakovich
Arensky
Shostakovich's agitated and desolate trio is contrasted with the marvellously warm late-Romanticism of Arensky.

Both aspects of the Russian musical experience are encompased by the Bekova sisters, here recorded in the West for the first time as a trio.

Review - "The disc perfectly matches the astringent with the slightly lush, but the Arensky - a long swig at the pleasure principal - has been played and re-played by me".

Edward Pearce, The Guardian.
