About this release

Elizabeth Poston’s Trio was composed for the Hampton Music Club where it received its first performance in 1958. It is possibly the first trio of its kind for this instrumentation, was considered a masterpiece at the time, and has been rediscovered by Korros Ensemble in this premier commercial recording.

The work is in four contrasting movements: it opens peacefully, then follows the second which is poignantly beautiful. The third is a short excursion into fairyland and the last has a strong rhythmic drive touches with a a puckish sense of humour.

“Crystal Clarity and lyrical playing by the Korros Ensemble in this fine recording of Elizabeth Poston’s masterpiece for flute, clarinet and harp.”
John Suchet

About the artists

Korros Ensemble

Comprising the beautiful and unusual combination of Flute, Clarinet and Harp, the Korros Ensemble has been performing together since its formation in 2001 during the musicians’ studies at the Royal Academy of Music. With a strong vision of introducing something new and original to the chamber music world, Korros continues to cleverly rework its favourite repertoire – creating an exciting and fresh way of listening to beloved orchestral, chamber and solo works. The group performs with dynamism and flair, and the sound world they produce is lush and mesmerising.

The group has collaborated with Ballet Rambert, and Pineapple Dance Studios. Other performances include Tate Modern, St. Martin-in-the-Fields, Birr Castle, Killaloe Cathedral and the Örbyhus and Hudiksvall Festivals, Sweden. The three musicians have individually performed with major UK orchestras, including Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Britten Sinfonia, Royal Opera House, Lyceum Theatre’s Lion King and numerous non-classical artists from Elton John and Beyoncé, to Peter Gabriel, Andrea Bocelli and Bette Midler.
