Notes and Editorial Reviews

MPR is proud to announce the latest release in its pioneering series of chamber music by Arnold Cooke with the Pleyel Ensemble. In world première recordings of Cookes Piano Trio (1941-44), Piano Quartet (1948/49) and the mighty Piano Quintet (1969). Although Cooke studied for a while in Germany with Hindemith, his music has a very English feel with a gloriously romantic Brahmsian influence. These are deeply satisfying compositions both to play and to hear and any lover of chamber music will undoubtedly enjoy the Pleyel Ensembles excellent and committed performances of these wonderful chamber works.
