Product Notes

Glinka wrote his piano trio of substituting violin for clarinet and/or cello for bassoon. He was a 28-year-old teacher at the conservatoire in Milan when he composed it, having left Russia and travelled south for his health. A note on the autograph score reads: 'I have known love only through the pain it brings,' yet the prevailing mood of the work is genial rather than tragic, full of Mediterranean sunshine rather than icy Russian chill. Glinka's lovely trio makes a unique yet natural coupling on record with three collections of fantasy pieces by Robert Schumann. These are all late works, written between 1849 and 1853 - a generation after Glinka's trio - and yet they share a predominant mood of playful high spirits alternating with wistful reflection that never spills over into outright tragedy. The Märchenerzählungen are fairy tales without words - perhaps a giant appears in the second, a princess in the third - while the trio of Romances plumbs a deeper vein of expression, especially in the popular version for clarinet rather than the original for oboe. Principal clarinet of the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra, Giovanni Punzi made this new album with colleagues from the orchestra alongside the Bulgarian-born, multi-award-winning pianist Galya Kolarova, who is also based in the Danish capital. Punzi's previous album for Brilliant Classics also focused on a German Romantic composer, Max Bruch (BC95673): according to the Fanfare magazine review of May 2019, 'There is a pronounced Italian snap to these performances that provides an intriguing alternative coloration to these works.'
