1998年5月,为了纪念Argerich和Kremer的经理人Reinhard Paulsen的逝世,三位大师Martha Argerich,Gidon Kremer和Mischa Maisky在日本东京举行了一场三重奏音乐会.两首曲目在俄罗斯的三重奏曲目中又都占有重要的地位,而且由于音乐会的特殊意义,它们均选自肖斯塔科维奇和柴科夫斯基为纪念亡友而写的作品,于是也让整张专辑的价值更加宝贵.这场演出之后他们就留下了"黄金三重奏"的美誉,但是无论这个称号是为什么而得来并不重要,因为这是三位音乐家第一次走到了一起并留下录音,而且在此之后他们也有更多合作的专辑相继问世.
In Japan they call it the 'Golden Trio' - and any recording that brings together Martha Argerich, Gidon Kremer and Mischa Maisky for a concert of works by Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich is guaranteed to be golden. Whether the three busy soloists, who are also good friends, owe this nickname to the unique quality of their musical collaboration or to the fact that their appearances together are so rare is beside the point.
This is the first time the three artists - each of whom has enjoyed a long individual association with the Yellow Label - can be heard as a trio on a Deutsche Grammophon disc.
The occasion for the recording was a sad one. Argerich, Kremer and Maisky met in Tokyo in May 1998 to honour the memory of the impresario Reinhard Paulsen, who, as Argerich's and Kremer's concert agent, worked hard to bring the Golden Trio before the public. The main works featured in the concert were both written by the composers for deceased friends.
Tchaikovsky composed his Piano Trio in A minor, op.50 in memory of his friend Nikolay Rubinstein in 1881-1882. Shostakovich's Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor was composed after the death of one of his closest friends, Ivan Sollertinsky, in 1944. It was with the latter work that the trio introduced itself in concert in Verbier in 1997.
