A wonderful recording (some strange noise at 6:40 but otherwise good) which I recommend you to listen to. Especially if you enjoy Ravel. The recordig is up on the site and I added a little text of this composition.

Maurice Ravel's Piano Trio in A minor is a chamber work for piano, violin and cello. It was written in 1914, in the French Basque province of Saint-Jean-de-Luz. On the 26th of September, Ravel wrote to Lucien Garban, "...in five weeks I have done five months' work. I wanted to finish my trio before joining up...". He was accepted as a nurse's aide by the Army in October. (In March of 1915 he became a volunteer truck driver for the 13th Artillery Regiment.)

Ravel dedicated the Trio to his counterpoint teacher Andre Gedalge. The trio was first performed in Paris in January, 1915, by Alfredo Casella (piano), Gabriel Willaume (violin), and Louis Feuillard (cello).

The piece lasts about thirty minutes, and is influenced by themes both Basque and Oriental. There are four movements:

- Modéré
- Pantoum (Assez vif)
- Passacaille (Très large)
- Final (Animé)

The second movement, Pantoum, refers to a Malaysian poetry form that repeats motifs, relying on context to give them different meanings: this can be heard in the structure of the movement.

Yes there is strange noise at 6:40 , it's recording accident, because it was Live recording, sound engineer didn't fix it.

Thank you for adding the piece on the site.

Wow! That was beautifully played!! Except for the aforementioned noise at 6:40 I enjoyed every second of it, and you should feel really good about acomplishing this performance. You just made this my favorite piano trio (even more than Tchaikovsky's)!! Thank you so much.

Thank you Chopinman0901 for your compliment,
On the stage during live performing error can be happen by performer, or sound recorder and by audience, this error 6.40 as I remember was electrical power error, it's not small piece to record again, so I left it as it is.
