Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Gould Trio have been at the forefront of the international chamber music scene for well over twenty years, and have been favourably compared to the Beaux Arts Trio in their heyday. Comprising violinist Lucy Gould, cellist Alice Neary and pianist Benjamin Frith they are part of the 'Champs Hill family' of artists having made numerous recordings at the Music Room, including their critically acclaimed recordings of Dvorak, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Mendelssohn, Maxwell Davies, Macmillan, Beamish for Champs Hill Records. This 6 album set brings together the complete Piano Trios, Quartets and Sextets by Brahms performed by the Gould Piano Trio with guest artists. Both versions of the Piano Trio No 1 are included in this set: the original Read more version, written in his twenties, and the version he revised at the age of 56. When CHR recorded the Brahms Piano Quartets with the Goulds in 2016, we thought it would be a brilliant idea to unite them with the Gould’s earlier Trio recordings of 2004/5 (originally released on Quartz, pre-dating the existence of Champs Hill Records), and to add the Kirchner Brahms-approved sextet arrangements; making an ideal six-album ‘box-set’ of some of Brahms’ most luxurious chamber music from some of the most experienced and acclaimed Brahms chamber musicians. At an attractive price-point, even listeners who may own one or more of the original Brahms Trios releases should find this a desirable set. “The Goulds have a generous, warm-hued view, finding a rich, golden sound with no want of fire or gossamer lightness when required.” Classical Music magazine ***** Read less
