The Gould Piano Trio have been compared to the Beaux Arts Trio for their ‘musical fire’ and ‘dedication to the genre’ and have remained at the forefront of the international chamber music scene for a quarter of a century. Their many appearances at the Wigmore Hall have included the complete piano trios of Dvořák, Mendelssohn and Schubert, as well as a Beethoven cycle to celebrate 25 years at this venue. The trio seeks new repertoire and has commissioned works from many contemporary composers. They maintain a lively relationship with promising young players by giving masterclasses worldwide. Their recordings range from standard works to neglected gems of the late romantic British repertoire. Last year’s recording of Ives, Rebecca Clarke and Amy Beach met critical acclaim, and a complete Schubert cycle is to follow.
