Μαθητής του Ρίμσκι-Κόρσακοφ αλλά κυρίως επηρεασμένος απ΄ τον Τσκαϊκόφσκι, ο Αντόν Αρένσκι άργησε να κερδίσει την εκτίμηση που του άξιζε, στιγματισμένος σαν συνθέτης “χωρίς ιδιαίτερα προσωπικό στιλ” – κατηγορία γελοία ούτως ή άλλως, αλλά και άδικη ως προς αυτόν.
Ακούμε το υπέροχο Allegro Moderato, πρώτο μέρος από το πιάνο τρίο, έργο αρ. 32. Ερμηνεύουν οι Claremont Trio.

A student of Rimsky-Korsakov but mainly influenced by Tchaikovsky, Anton Arensky was slow to gain the appreciation he deserved, stigmatized as a composer “without a particularly personal style” – an accusation ridiculous in itself to begin with, but also unfair to him.
We hear the brilliant Allegro Moderato, first part of his piano trio Op. 32. Performed by the Claremont Trio.


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music !

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
