Jan Ladislav Dussek Piano Trios. (p) 2000 Suedwestrundfunk/cpo

 

Dussek experienced an eventful life, with much travelling around the European capitals. Doubtless a fine keyboard player, he gathered a reputation for his music, mostly solo keyboard and chamber works.

The wafer-thin textures of his ensemble music are fine in sympathetic performance creating an ambience that goes with the music and the style; and Dussek's melodic gifts were varied enough to provide fertile material for development. During the course of these half-dozen or so sonatas it blends and binds the material to engage the ear and delight the mind [listen - track 3, 1:14-1:50]. Trio 1790 unites the talent of performers who know exactly what manner of performance gives this music its style and vivacity. As a whole, this 63 minutes is proof enough.
