Overview

The Canadian Gryphon Trio's two-disc set of Schubert's complete music for piano trio features heartfelt performances played with energy and enthusiasm. The Andante con moto from the "E flat Trio" and the "Notturno in E flat" major are beautifully sung here with the long legato lines of violinist Annalee Patipatanakoon and cellist Roman Borys flowing over the poised and alert support of pianist Jamie Parker. The strong rhythms and vigorous tempos the players bring to the outer movements of both trios, particularly the Allegro vivace -- Presto that closes the "B flat Trio," are particularly successful. Finally, the cogency of the Gryphon Trio's ensemble makes a persuasive case for the enormous length of both works. In sum, if you've never heard any of these standard repertoire works before, the Gryphon Trio's recordings will certainly satisfy. If you've heard some of the classic recordings of the past -- and the Beaux Arts Trio's elegantly lyrical first recording tops the short list -- the Gryphon Trio's recording will perhaps seem less compelling. Recorded in Église St. Benoit de Mirabel in 2006, Analekta's digital sound is clear and direct, but a bit distant.
