Leonore Piano Trio
Rachel Roberts (viola)


After a successful rehearsal of his Piano Quartet in 1879, Parry declared that he was ‘wild with delight’. He could have been no less enthusiastic on hearing this dynamic account from the Leonore Piano Trio with violist Rachel Roberts.

Leonore Piano Trio:
- Benjamin Nabarro (violin)
- Tim Horton (piano)
- Gemma Rosefield (cello)


If this magnificent new instalment in the Leonore Trio’s survey of Parry’s chamber music on Hyperion proves one thing, it’s that we shouldn’t take him for granted. ... what is unexpected is the sheer strength of musical personality that emerges from behind the obvious influences. I can’t think of anything quite like the lowering, overcast chromatic introduction that raises the curtain on the Piano Quartet, the quiet, questioning mood that slowly creeps into the slow movement of the Second Trio or the same work’s utterly delightful folk-flavoured Scherzo. ... It all leaps off the page in these red blooded and surely unsurpassable performances.  Richard Bratby
