Latvian composer Peteris Vasks (b. 1946) has earned much international acclaim through his deeply spiritual works of choral music, symphonies and concertos. Vasks list of works also includes several pieces of chamber music. This album by Trio Palladio from Latvia includes Vasks works for the piano trio.
"The performance from these Latvian musicians is as soulful as could be imagined...[Plainscapes] - with exquisite gradations of vibrato from the two strings - is invested with rare space, profundity and a sense of deep personal need. Most Vasks discs are worth hearing but this one is a cut above." Gramophone Editor's Choice April 2020
"even the quieter works have an expressive intensity that focuses the listener's attention … The sheer virtuosity of the string playing is an asset in all three works" Classical CD Review
"This is a deeply satisfying disc. Trio Palladio's version of Episodi e canto perpetuo is my clear front-runner, and they play the two other pieces with equal intensity and passion. They have been captured in a wonderful acoustic, with quite natural recorded sound. The booklet notes are all you could wish for." MusicWeb Recommended May 2020
