SIR HUBERT PARRY
Parry: Piano Trio No 2 / Piano Quartet
Leonore Piano Trio

[ Hyperion / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 28 June 2019

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.

"Altogether, this is an album to spend time with and relish as one's familiarity with this music grows in performances which capture the genial warmth as well as the seriousness of this great but gently spoken composer." BBC Music

"You don't need a musicology PhD to guess that Schumann and Brahms will be important presences in Parry's musical universe…But what is unexpected is the sheer strength of musical personality that emerges from behind the obvious influences…It all leaps off the page in these red-blooded and surely unsurpassable performances…Lovers of English music needn't hesitate." Gramophone Editor's Choice August 2019
