BIOGRAPHY

Since winning first prize at both the Premio Vittorio Gui in Florence and the inaugural Melbourne Chamber Music Competition, and being promoted as British ‘Rising Stars’, the Gould Piano Trio has emerged as one of the finest of its kind performing today. The Independent described its members as ‘master musicians’, and their widely diverse repertoire and ever-expanding discography display a strong stylistic conviction appreciated by audiences and critics alike. Concerts at major venues such as the Wigmore and Carnegie halls and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and tours of North andSouth America, Europe and the Far East, as well as highly regarded educational projects, have introduced them to a wide and varied public. Having established their own annual festival with Robert Plane in the Northumbrian town of Corbridge, they enjoy exploring contrasting chamber music genres with their musical peers. Their first-hand experience of work with contemporary composers, such as at BBC Radio 3’s James MacMillan Celebrations at the Barbican, has led to the commissioning of many new works. In the mainstream repertoire the Gould Piano Trio will be the first ensemble to recordall seven trios by Brahms, but it will continue to champion many hidden gems of the romantic era, for example the trios of Robert Fuchs and Niels Gade, as well asworks by Bax, Stanford and Ireland, the subject of another recording project. This second CD by the Trio for Chandos follows its widely acclaimed recording of Messiaen’s Quatuor pour la fin du Temps
