Leonore Piano Trio

Music spanning the decade which saw Parry established as a national celebrity. If the accident-prone first performance of the E minor trio in 1878 left its composer disheartened, he would surely have rejoiced to hear such alert, attentive interpretations as we have here.

Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine

"Enthusiasm isn’t always enough to prevent recordings of unfamiliar music from sounding raw but these performances feel fully matured – fresh, intelligent and strikingly stylish; edgy when they need to be and opening out generously when Parry’s romantic impulse demands it…It’s certainly never a wallow…Phrases are taut and melodies are deftly characterised."

Sunday Times

"The Leonore Trio give both works with ripe timbres and passion, meticulous in ensemble and intonation. They’re equally convincing in the early Partita, for violin and piano.
