S. Richter, O. Kagan & N. Gutman: Tchaikovsky Piano Trio

Sviatoslav Richter (piano), Oleg Kagan (violin) and Natalia Gutman (cello) perform Tchaikovsky's Piano Trio in A minor, opus 50, for piano, violin, and cello at a recital in Moscow on December 30, 1986. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky completed the piece in Rome, Italy, in January 1882. The work carries the subtitle: "In memory of a great artist," which refers to Nikolai Rubinstein, his close friend and mentor, who died on March 23, 1881.
