Overview

Canada's foremost piano trio, the Gryphon Trio, has a reputation for offering richly detailed performances and excellent ensemble work. This nine-disc set represents not only much of their best work, but also much of the best of the piano trio repertoire. There are six of Mozart's trios; all of Schubert's and Shostakovich's works in the genre; and highlights of Beethoven's, including the three "Op. 1 trios," the "Archduke" and the "Ghost" trios, and the "Op. 11 trio" originally for clarinet, cello, and piano. The only noticeable omissions are the Haydn "Gypsy Trio" and the Dvorák "Dumky Trio." Regardless, the selections and these particular performances should not disappoint anyone looking for the most popular pieces of the genre in one set.
