Revelatory playing

The Observer, Stephen Pritchard

Following hard on the heels of Trio Wanderer’s imposing Harmonia Mundi recording of Anton Arensky’s Piano Trio No 1 we now have the Leonore’s readings of both his trios (with Rachmaninov’s Vocalise, arranged for piano trio, as a dreamy treat). Equally impressive, the Leonore Trio do much to persuade us to listen anew to Arensky – too often dismissed as a lightweight Tchaikovsky –

playing with sumptuous breadth and beguiling warmth in the first trio, and with appropriate seriousness of intent in the altogether graver second. Revelatory playing from Benjamin Nabarro, violin, Gemma Rosefield, cello, and Tim Horton, piano.
