Notes & Reviews:

"This truly delightful disc from Naxos contains a broad spectrum of chamber music by Arnold Bax. They range from works written when he was a student at the Royal Academy of Music - and which he later suppressed - to the last chamber piece he composed (in 1946), the Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano in B flat, with which the disc opens... This fantastic piece was dedicated to the Irish composer Rowan-Hamilton. It contains strong hints of Irish folk music, and is full of vigorous joy and the vibrancy of life, brought out well in this outstanding performance. The Gould Piano Trio's playing is confident, assured, characterful and sensitive, and they bring out the tremendous sense of fun in these works. Although there are other - also excellent - recordings of these works, at a budget price this disc, where a good combination of brilliant and beautiful works are so well-played, can't be beaten." -MusicWeb (Bargain of the Month)
