The Emanuel Ensemble - a flexible chamber group - here present an enticing recital programme for flute,cello & piano, showcasing the undoubted talents of these three acclaimed young players.

The brilliant cellist Louisa Tuck is the youngest principal of any UK orchestra, and in addition to the Trio repertoire on this disc she also performs Schumann’s Adagio & Allegro for cello & piano, with the sought-after young pianist John Reid. Requiring considerable virtuosity in the concluding portion, and a projection of dreamy Romantic feeling in the opening, this work is of a perfect two-part structure.

Anna Stokes, a much n demand flautist, takes the solo role too, in Borne’s bravura Fantasie Brilliante, composed on themes from Bizet’s Carmen - its high point the increasingly flashy variations on the celebrated Habenera theme.

This exuberant album opens with Piazolla’s La Muerte del Angel, and its decisive, thrusting climax sets up the rest of the album. Gaubert’s soulful Piece Romantic (also written for the album’s central combination of flute, cello and paino) has a lyric charm and an eventide contentment; in stark contrast to the joyous Trio by Nikolai Kapustin. Seemingly improvisatory, this three-movement piece works out its themes throughly and fantastically, with walking basses, hypnotic ostinatos and ’solo spots’ for each instrument. It turns languidly nostalgic and capricious, this jazz-based Trio is one of the most popular works of Kapustin’s output, and rounds off with an insouciant and irrestistable display of animal vitality.

As Louise Farren’s work is being rediscovered, it looks as though she may have been the most important female composer of the first half  of the 19th century. Her Trio in E minor, performed by the Emanuel Ensemble for this recital, is written in full classical sonata form, showing considerable contrapuntal artistry. The work concludes in effervescent high spirits, bring proceedings to a close in high good humour.
 

"The trios by Nikolai Kapustin and Louise Farrenc could not be more different. Indeed, it sounds like two distinct  groups are playing them-very differently, yet very well. This then, is my inroduction to the Emanuel Ensemble, and it would well serve as yours. Their debut disc also includes pieces for the flutist and cellist individually, and the pianist manages to shine all the way through. I would gladly hear  more from all three players, alone or together..."

Gorman - American Record Guide - November/December 2011

*****
Anna Stokes' playing thoughout the album is amazing! I truely enjoyed Carmen's Fantasie Brilliant variantions, as I had not heard this arrangement before. The whole ensemble played together as one and the recording quality was very clear and well done. This is one of my favorite ensembles!
