Notes & Reviews:

The Rubbra Trio had its origins during the Second World War, when Edmund Rubbra and William Pleeth were in the Army Classical Music Group. Here they perform Rubbra's Piano Trio in One Movement (1949-50) and Mozart's Piano Trio No.1 - both originally issued on a rare early 1950s Argo LP - as well as the Adagio cantabile from Haydn's Piano Trio in F sharp minor. The legendary Griller Quartet provide a typically exquisite reading of Rubbra's String Quartet No.2 (1950-51), making this an essential release for lovers of British and European chamber music.
