“A truly satisfying recital played by the best of friends”

The elegant personages pictured on the cover of this album comprise some of the most sought-after musicians working in the UK today, and listening to this disc, one can see why. From the outset, the sound is ravishing, ensemble perfect and all phrased to the nth degree. Stravinsky wrote one of the few original works for flute, clarinet and harp, but his austere work seems to be like an hallucination when listening to Korros here; the music and playing is lush, filmic and so compelling. New works by Cheryl Frances-Hoad and Catrin Finch are of great interest, while Elizabeth Poston’s nocturnal trio provides some fine intellectual challenge. A truly satisfying recital played by the best of friends, with report that comes from beaming through every note.
