A DIFFERENT GAME - piano trios by Rhona Clarke
Reviewing MSV 28556, which contained Rhona Clarke's Second piano trio, one critic expressed the desire to hear much more of this exceptional composer's work, and we are delighted to present this new disc adding the 3rd and 4th trios to No. 2, together wth three other works played by individual members of the Fidelio Trio. Clarke's original and bewitching style is evident in every work as it is also in her vocal piece "....smiling like that..." (on MSV 28558).

|“This CD explores six imaginative works. Each one is approachable, despite the composer making no concessions to the current craze for insipid minimalism so often in evidence in contemporary music. She has managed to create an exciting and often challenging personal voice that is always interesting and often quite beautiful. The trio's playing on this new CD of music by Rhona Clarke is outstanding. Not only are they a hugely proficient ensemble, but are willing to perform solo pieces with equal proficiency.” – John France (MusicWeb)|
