Notes and Editorial Reviews

Stone Records is delighted to announce the debut disc of the Phoenix Piano Trio. Released to coincide with their Wigmore Hall recital, this live disc was recorded last year, during the Trio's 'Beyond Beethoven' series in London and Oxford, which encompassed the entire Beethoven piano trio repertoire alongside five newly- commissioned works. This all-Beethoven CD features the famed Archduke trio alongside the magnificent trio in E flat, Op.70 No.2, a work that is heard less frequently but shows Beethoven at his most reflective and imaginative. This repertoire is rarely encountered in a live recording, and the vibrancy of the performances is wonderfully captured on this disc by award-winning engineer Julian Millard. The Phoenix Piano Trio is Read more fast establishing itself as one of today's leading ensembles, and makes an impressive statement in not only recording Beethoven's seminal Archduke trio but also daring to release it as a live disc. The result is testament to their musicianship and the vitality of their playing. CRITICAL ACCLAIM 'the Trio sounded as if they'd been playing together all their lives as they delivered a virtuosic performance' The Oxford Times "A tour de force... an interesting programme and such flawless performance" (on Jonathan Stone), Beat Magazine "A cellist who can hold a stage and captivate an audience" (on Marie Macleod), The Strad "Displaying an exceptional expressive range, not only ideally agile but with the most subtle range of tone and dynamic" (on Sholto Kynoch), Gramophone Read less
