The acclaimed Fidelio Trio make their Resonus deItalicbut with an exquisite recording of French piano trios Ė Camille Saint-SaŽnsís large-scale Second Trio, op.92, and Maurice Ravelís sole foray into the genre dating from 1914.

Coming off the back of a Royal Philharmonic Society Award nomination in 2016, this recording sees the Trio expand on their unparalleled reputation for new music demonstrating the vast range of this brilliant chamber groupís abilities and talent.

ĎRavelís Piano Trio was a lyric upwelling Ö the Fidelio players brought it off superbly, and it was a joyí
- The Sunday Times

ĎThis is a bold and powerful recording, thoughtfully recorded, showing the young Fidelio Trio to be a force to be reckoned withí
- International Record Review


The Fidelio [Trio] have done their thinking for the Saint-SaŽns and the result is superb: you certainly know that the piano is working hard with all those arpeggios and rapid, keyboard-crossing chords, but the performance is all of a piece, with the violin and cello speaking with just as much authority and ťlan. ... The Fidelioís interpretation possesses admirable clarity and definition, polish and brio, qualities they bring also to a very different world of sound in the Ravel Trio. In both works their interpretative touch is secure, their rapport instinctive. Together with their eloquence and passion, this all adds up to something special.  Geoffrey Norris
