More Info:

The twice-Grammy-nominated Lincoln Trio - violinist Desirée Ruhstrat, cellist David Cunliffe, and pianist Marta Aznavoorian - offers engaging, rarely heard piano trios by 20th-century Chicago composers Leo Sowerby, winner of the Rome Prize and Pulitzer Prize for music, and Ernst Bacon, recipient of three Guggenheim Fellowships and a Pulitzer Fellowship. Bacon's Trio No. 2 for Violin, Cello and Piano (1987) receives it's world-premiere recording. Hailed by The New York Times as "a Composer Known for Echoing America," Bacon infuses his six-movement trio with American influences including marches, folksong-like melodies, and jazz rhythms, validating Virgil Thomson's assessment of Bacon's music as "full of melody and variety; honest and skillful and beautiful." Sowerby's Trio for violin, violincello and pianoforte (1953) is "a work of tremendous integrity" that exhibits an "imposing structure, contrapuntal gymnastics, and a concern for instruments sounding as good as they can" (Classical Net). Sometimes virtuosic, sometimes reflective, the work is distinguished by an ever-evolving rhythmic and harmonic interplay between instruments.
