The Trio

Pablo Casals


Star instrumentalists do not make the best chamber musicians, because the most famous player tends to dominate. An exception to this imbalance was the all-star trio, famous around 1930, of Pablo Casals, cello, Jacques Thibaud, violin, and Alfred Cortot, piano. Among their most memorable records was their interpretation of Beethoven's Archduke Trio, and this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, you will hear that Trio.
