Felix Mendelssohn’s superlative second piano trio is coupled here with a similar but little-known work by his older sister, Fanny, whose formidable gifts as a composer and pianist were overshadowed by the brilliance of her younger brother. The exemplary performances by the Atlantis Trio presented here provide a fitting tribute to these two early Romantic geniuses.
