<<  -- 2 --  Patric Standford    EXQUISITE QUALITY


The piece called Círculo, the third and last Piano Trio written by Joaquín Turina, expresses in its three movements the cycle of 'sunrise', 'midday' [listen -- track 2, 0:00-0:54] and 'twilight', music of exquisite quality given an affectionate performance. And the recital ends in ebullient fashion with the Kandinski Trio's own Gitane á Trois, an exciting amalgam of gypsy music using the full and colourful resources of the piano trio to fine effect [listen -- track 13, 7:31-8:29].
