Composed by Nikolai Kapustin
For Flute, Cello, and Piano
Published by MUST/A-RAM Moscow
Includes score, flute part, and cello part
Kapustin's Trio for flute, cello, and piano, Op86 was, at the time of its composition in 1998, the composer's first chamber composition, with piano, for more than two players. It has since proved to be one of his more popular works, with its energetic, jazzy opening movement, languid Andante and joyous finale, and much of its attractiveness lies in the equal treatment Kapustin gives to each player. The work was given its UK premiere at the Shaw Theatre, London, in February 2006 to much critical acclaim.
