Notes & Reviews:

Cyril Scott was one of the 'Frankfurt Gang'; a group of young composers who studied at the Hoch'sche Konservatorium with the likes of Roger Quilter and Percy Grainger. After the first World War he found himself increasingly at odds with the musical establishment which contributed to his lack of recognition as a serious composer. Scott wrote over two dozen chamber works but with the exception of the Clarinet Concerto, this new recording by The Gould Trio presents premiere recordings.

The Guardian,
Chandos continues to fly the flag for neglected 20th-century British music with this excellently played selection of Cyril Scott's chamber music...Those who maintain that Scott's music has been unjustly ignored for more than half a century...will no doubt welcome this collection.

BBC Music Magazine
Only the amiable 1951 Clarinet Quintet for Gervase de Peyer has been recorded before, but it's the 1955 Clarinet Trio, first performed in New Zealand, that seems the most striking and characterful work here. The excellent Gould Trio are the stalwarts of this enjoyable disc.
