Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

For their fourth recording on Albany Records, the Rawlins Piano Trio has once again uncovered gems of the American repertoire including three world premiere recordings of the Grasse, Risher and Wilson and a commissioned work from the brilliant young composer Daniel Bernard Roumain. Founded in 1987 the Rawlins Piano Trio performs regularly throughout the United States and abroad. They have formed a reputation as a preeminent interpreter of 19th and early 20th century American music.

"This is one of those discs with an excavatory bent that really hits gold. The Cowell caught my eye first, but, in the event, my ears were beguiled by the entire program. My only true criticism of this disc is that one is left wanting more, and with an available playing time of around 80 minutes for a disc these days, there was space for a good 10 minutes more. The Rawlins Piano Trio is an excellent group of musicians (John Thomson, violin; Marie-Elaine Gagnon, cello; Susan Keith Gray, piano). The recording is quite dry, but in no way detracts from the sheer musical excellence on display here." - Fanfare
