About this Item

Phaeton Piano Trio
The Phaeton Trio appeared for the first time in the U.S. at the Library of Congress. Recently formed by a group of stellar musicians centered in Weimar and Leipzig Friedemann Eichhorn, violin, Peter Horr, cello and Florian Uhlig, piano. The trio revealed the premiere of a new completion of a Beethoven piano trio fragment by Victor Kissine, of which we offer a portion here. In contrast with their mythological namesake, the Phaeton Trio maintains control of their musical chariot as they soar through the heavens, setting alight the music of Beethoven and Mendelssohn.
