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
