In this latest release, Sarah is again joined by eminent Gál exponent Kenneth Woods, this time in his role as international cellist. Together with renowned violin virtuoso, David Juritz, they form the new Briggs Piano Trio
This latest AVIE release brings together two of today’s most eminent Gál interpreters, Sarah Beth Briggs and Kenneth Woods with violin virtuoso David Juritz for a recording of Gál’s breathtakingly lyrical Piano Trio in E major and his witty Variations on a Popular Viennese Tune. Gál’s music and destiny was shaped by war and political upheaval, as was that of Dmitri Shostakovich, whose Piano Trio in E minor, one of the monuments of 20th century chamber music, is a harrowing souvenir of the times in which it was written.
