Chamber Trio Recital

I just heard Shostakovich's piano trio and Brahms trio in C major. It was performed by Dan Rizner, Eric Edberg, and May Phang. The Shostakovich was great and very dark considering it was written during Stalins reign. You can hear the drama created throughout the piece and really visualize what was going through his head during the composing of the piece. I had heard the Brahms before but it was performed well. If you havn't heard the Shostakovich, do a backround check on it first and then listen. It blew me away.
