Notes & Reviews:

Édouard Lalo sat apart from the French musical establishment, eschewing both the back scratching of the Conservatoire and its members' impressionist "musiques parfumés." Instead he gave us works filled with big-boned melodies. The expert members of the Leonore Piano Trio sink their bows and fingers into Lalo's Piano Trios Nos.1, 2 and 3 with appreciative gusto.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2016
The excellent Leonore Trio certainly give their all in these often exciting and beautiful works, most especially the B minor Trio, No. 2. There's high virtuosity all round - superb light, dazzling backgrounds from Tim Horton, searing intensity of tone from violinist Benjamin Nabarro and cellist Gemma Rosefield. Now and then you might wonder if they're overstating the case; but get into the spirit and it's terrific stuff.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2016
The burning passion is ignited more in the third of the trios than in the other two, and it is something that the Leonore Trio harness to striking effect. The suavity of playing is another key factor in lending all three trios the polish and panache that they merit.

Sunday Times, January 2016
[This is] a remarkable disc of his piano trios by the Leonore, who make a good case for them. If he rather Schumannesque first (c1850) is slightly anonymous, the other two, especially the B minor, are strong, original pieces - a real discovery.
