Notes & Reviews:

Formed in 2007, the Cavell Trio is a collaboration born out of friendship and a desire to share the love of music-making with others. All three members are active as performers, teachers, and chamber music coaches, and their individual commitment to education and outreach is evidenced in their myriad collective activities - performing, coaching, outreach performances, festival appearances, international travel, and commissioning. The Art of Collective Invention marks the first release for this dynamic trio. Featured here are six 20th century works for wind trio, two of them in their debut recordings. The title of the album is borrowed from filmmaker Jonathan Demme (Philadelphia, Silence of the Lambs, Rachel Getting Married), who uses the phrase to describe the efforts of a diverse set of people with special skills in creating his films. Much as with filmmaking, chamber music demands this sort of selfless giving to create an expressive and engaging artistic whole. From the very first sounds of this recording, the listener will be struck by the beauty that such collaboration can yield.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
A similar problem exists for the Villa- Lobos. On one hand it challenges the listener and performer; but on the other, performers must learn to somehow compensate for its audience inaccessibility through imaginative and balanced programming. Audiences are not searching for the same experiences as they did at the turn of the 20th Century. As an art form that expressed that era's zeitgeist, these pieces reflect different tastes, interests, and questions to be answered. To be sure, these musicians are excellent, and this recording is worth finding, but either musicians now need to be artists, historians, and social scientists, or we need to be more attentive listeners.
