Notes & Reviews:

Hailed by Critics and audiences alike, in both Canada and the United States, the Gryphon Trio is just as much at ease performing contemporary repertoire, notably through commissions and premiers of new works, as it is playing classical masterworks.

This recording is the last in the series devoted by the Gryphon Trio to Beethoven's Piano Trios.

Strongly dedicated to pushing the boundaries of chamber music, the Trio has collaborated on special projects with clarinetist James Campbell, actor Colin Fox, choreographer David Earle, and a host of jazz luminaries at Toronto's Lula Lounge.

Cellist Roman Borys has taken the lead with the Trio's responsibilities as artistic directors of the Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival, a position they have held for two seasons.

"These finely judged and warmly recorded performances gave me a great deal of pleasure. I particularly liked the players' leisurely tempos in the opening movement of the Trio Op. 70 No. 2, and the way they brought out the gruff humour of the concluding variations in Beethoven's own adaptation of his Op. 11 Trio" -BBC Music****
