Description: cpo has plans to record the majority of this Croatian composer's chamber music, so consider this a Volume One. The second of her two piano trios dates from 1910 and is in four movements. A gorgeous, singing lyricism obtains almost throughout, with dense polyphonic textures providing a rich, full sound picture; the humorous, witty and sometimes grotesque scherzo leavens the lushness of the other three movements. The sonata is from 1913 and is every bit its disc-mate's doppelgänger although slightly more reserved emotionally. Andrei Byelov (violin), Christian Poltéra (cello), Oliver Triendl (piano).
