Notes & Reviews:

The American Lions Gate Trio's third and latest Centaur CD features three magnificent 20th century piano trios, one each from Frenchmen Maurice Ravel, the American iconoclast Charles Ives and the eminent English composer Rebecca Clarke. Internationally acclaimed in both the U.S. and Europe and lauded by the press for their CD's, the Lions Gate Trio are currently in residence at the Hartt School (University of Hartford). "... wonderful soloists, and as a team, unbeatable." - Berlin Morgenpost

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
The Ravel here is dominated by the piano so that his Trio sounds more like a piano sonata with obbligato violin and cello; and there's nothing wrong with that. And tempos are brisker than usual, which also works fine. Sound is warm, with plenty of atmosphere around the instruments, yet each voice is heard clearly enough. Clarke's trio is at a middle ground harmonically between Ravel and Ives. This is a very fine concert, well planned and executed, satisfying, in plush sound.
