Donald Francis Tovey (1875–1940) has long been known as one of the finest writers on music in English – but he saw himself primarily as a composer. His Symphony, Op. 32, and Cello Concerto, Op. 40, already released in this Toccata Classics survey of Tovey’s music, alerted modern listeners to a major voice in British orchestral music. These two trios, lyrical and intense, from the start of Tovey’s career, present him in his first love: chamber music.

Robert Atchison, violin

  1. :

    “This issue is highly recommended and augurs well for further releases in this series, which I look forward to hearing with eager anticipation.” —Peter Joelson, Classical Source

  2. :

    “The London Piano Trio audibly believe in every note, and their dedicated performances are set within a bold sound frame that’s somewhat tiring on the ear. The presentation is copiously detailed, as ever from this source. Inquisitive collectors can safely investigate.” –Gramophone Magazine
