Album Description Download Full CD Booklet

Poetry inspired remarkable trios by three Romantic composers: August Klughardt's Schumannesque Schilflieder (Songs of the Reeds) from 1872 tell the poignant story of a man 'reunited' with the ghost of his lost love. American composer Charles Martin Loeffler's Two Rhapsodies for Oboe, Viola, and Piano (1901), also inspired by love lost, offers a delightful blend of French Impressionism and New World freshness. British composer Felix White's evocative The Nymph's Complaint for the Death of her Fawn (1921) won a Carnegie Award and the admiration of Ralph Vaughan Williams.

Also on the disc are Marco Aurélio Yano's beautiful transformation of a melody from his native Brazil, titled Modinha (1984), and Paul Hindemith's extraordinary Trio for Viola, Heckelphone, and Piano, Op. 47 (1928), which sizzles with a dramatic modernism all its own.

All receive inspired performances by renowned oboist Alex Klein, former principal of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and his friends Richard Young, violist of the venerated Vermeer Quartet, and Brazilian pianist Ricardo Castro, winner of the 1993 Leeds International Piano Competition.
