Piano Trio in A minor

Piano Trio

Leokadiya Kashperova


  • Edited by Graham Griffiths
  • Part of the Boosey & Hawkes Kashperova Edition Series
  • Score and parts
  • Advanced level


Predominantly recognised in musical history as Stravinsky’s piano teacher, Leokadiya Kashperova is undergoing rediscovery. A double graduate of the St Petersburg Conservatoire, Kashperova performed in Germany and the UK before her career sadly petered out in the 1920s.

The Piano Trio in A minor pencil manuscript was only discovered recently in 2019. The work has been edited for performance by Graham Griffiths in close collaboration with members of the Gould Piano Trio, who gave the world première in 2020.

A four-movement work of 28 minutes’ duration and in full-blooded Romantic idiom, it joins the recently republished Cello Sonatas in the Kashperova Edition.

Suitable for advanced level musicians.
