Piano Trio No. 1 (Arensky)
- Allegro moderato (12:00)
- Scherzo – Allegro molto (5:55)
- Elegia – Adagio (6:20)
- Finale – Allegro non troppo (5:50)
Although by a lesser-known composer, it is highly regarded and often considered[by whom?] the gem among Arensky's compositions.
The trio is dedicated to the memory of Karl Davydov.
The composer made a very early recording of the trio on wax cylinders, with the violinist Jan Hřímalý, the cellist Anatoliy Brandukov, and himself at the piano. This recording was made shortly after its composition and is almost certainly its first recording, although it is not complete.
