One of the outstanding chamber ensembles of the early 20th century was composed of the great cellist Pablo Casals and two outstanding French musicians, the violinist Jacques Thibaud and the pianist Alfred Cortot. Together they recorded in the 1920s and 1930s some of the classics of the piano trio repertory. We will sample some of their recordings.
