Ravel Piano Trio in A Minor

These two works by Ravel are among the greatest chamber works of the 20th century. The Quartet is both like and utterly different from Debussy’s - delicate, restrained, sensual and wild by turns. The Trio, written in 1914, is not surprisingly darker, and even more overwhelming in its effect. Three days after France entered World War 1, in a hurry to enlist, Ravel wrote:“I am working on the Trio with the sureness and lucidity of a madman.”
