The Rautio Piano Trio made their Resonus Classics recording debut in 2016 with a disc of three piano trios by Mozart – trios in B flat major (KV 502), in E major (KV 542) and in G major (KV 564).
The Trio perform here on period instruments – including a fortepiano that once belonged to the late Christopher Hogwood CBE. This critically acclaimed debut disc received multiple 4 and 5 star reviews, was hailed by the Observer as ‘an impressive achievement’ and is frequently played on BBC Radio 3, most recently for Composer of the Week (2019).
The Rautio Trio currently offer classical period programmes on fortepiano and are due to begin recording the complete cycle of Beethoven Trios in 2020. The Trio will also be offering later 19th century repertoire on an Erard piano next season.
