From their early success at the Charles Hennen and the inaugural Melbourne Competitions through being selected as British "Rising Stars" in 1998, the Gould Piano Trio has emerged as one of the finest chamber ensembles, boasting an impressive discography, with festival appearances at Edinburgh, Cheltenham, City of London, Bath, Aldeburgh, Spoleto and the BBC Proms.
In their regular and extensive tours to the U.S.A. they have covered the major venues in New York including the Lincoln Center, Frick Collection and Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall. In Europe, highlights have included the Queens Hall - Edinburgh, Concertgebouw Amsterdam and the Palais des Beaux Arts - Brussels, as well as recitals in Paris, Cologne, Athens and Vienna while regularly performing at London's Wigmore Hall.
Indeed, while playing most of the established master-works of the trio repertoire their discography includes the complete trios of both Mendelssohn and Brahms they have an artistic ambition to extend boundaries, challenging audiences (and themselves!) by playing and commissioning contemporary works. Such a commission, Northumberland; Radical Light, a Clarinet Quartet (Clarinet and Piano Trio) by Benjamin Wallfisch introduce the trio to clarinetist Robert Plane.
"The Gould Piano Trio) met (Smetana's Trio in G Major's) emotional demands with the highest commitment and deepest artistic insight, seemlessly moving through its shifting, conflicting states of feeling while revealing their complexities and nuances." ~Los Angeles Times
