Coming in 2018 From Trio Anima Mundi

Following their wonderful disc of Romantic Trios (DDA 25102) Australian ensemble Trio Anima Mundi are now preparing a luscious album of English trios to be released on Divine Art (DDA 25158) next year; this will include the Piano Trios of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor and Henry Waldo Warner, the First Trio of Rosalind Elliott, and the Folk-Song Fantasy by Cliffe Forrester.

New Music from David Braid

Métier will release a fascinating new album (currently scheduled for November) with a new set of works by English composer David Braid whose most recent album on Toccata was highly praised. ‘Songs, solos and duos’ features the velvet tone of the electric archtop guitar in a chamber, solo and vocal setting; also includes Braid’s evocative duos for flute/classical guitar and clarinet/piano – plus his 1st Piano Sonata: an eclectic range of recent works from the one of the UK’s most original yet approachable composers, performed by a dynamic set of world-class players.
